The RHS Malvern Spring Festival 2019 took place last week and, as ever, there were glorious gardens and inspirational planting ideas on show. Here’s are three of our favourite show gardens this year.
The What If Show Garden
The What If show garden is a firm favourite with Fresh Design and we love its use of bold colour and garden structures. It was designed by Sebastian Conrad in collaboration with artist Kate Rees and takes its inspiration from creativity within an artists mind.
We were pleased to see this garden got awarded a well deserved gold medal.
The Red Shift Garden
The Red Shift garden was designed by Julie Bellingham, from Rockhopper Garden Design, and sponsored by the Institute of Physics. The design of the garden is influenced by astronomy and, especially, telescopes and the way they’ve helped us understand the universe.
There are sculptures in the garden representing both ground and space telescopes, plus a space to sit (the earth).
Mimosa Design: Grace and Dignity Show Garden
The Grace and Dignity garden is by Lucie Giselle Ponsford, from Mimosa Design and celebrates the grace and dignity of older women who continue gardening throughout their later years.
We love the circular elements, the carefully selected planting schemes and great use of flowing shapes and gentle movement in this garden – it’s definitely got a good sense of grace and dignity.
