gardeners world live 2021
We are so excited to have been chosen to build our show garden 'A Very British Affair' at BBC Gardeners World Live 2020 at the NEC in Birmingham! It's very unfortunate that the show will now be postponed due to the outbreak of Covid-19, we are eagerly waiting to hear the new dates but are as excited as ever for this amazing event to go ahead. We have worked in collaboration with Tony from Antony Lionel Garden Design to create this design which we hope will wow visitors to the event later this year. Our teams will be busy for around four weeks prior to the event, working hard to turn this design into a reality.
The garden is compact yet beautiful, incorporating a living-moss wall, rain curtain and dining area, all tied together by a water rill which takes the flow of water to a seating area around a fire-pit and moat.
Watch out on our Facebook and Instagram pages for updates on the build!

Leave faded hydrangea heads on the plants over the winter to protect them from first, they can be pruned back in the spring after the last frosty night has passed.
Clean out greenhouse thoroughly now they are emptying out for winter, and make sure they are free from pests and diseases.
If lawns are growing then they can still be cut, but just make sure mower blades are on their highest setting.
Keep clearing leaves off lawns to make sure light is able to get through to the grass.
Group potted plants together in a shletered spot to help them stay protected from harsh frosts.
