RHS Hampton Court - Day One!
Tuesday, June 30, 2015
Hampton Court Flower Show is officially in bloom! Yesterday saw the arrival of the press and judges with medals being awarded today... Our gorgeous collaborative garden 'A Growing Obsession' is absolutely burgeoning and blooming beautiful, and has just been awarded a silver medal!Our urns and balustrading prominently feature in A Growing Obsession, and we couldn't be prouder to be part of such a wonderful design... The public are raving about the sublime scented scene, we're sure it will do extremely well in the upcoming People's Choice awards (click the text to cast your vote now!) The talented David Bartholomew was on hand yesterday to capture the garden in all it's glory, we hope you get a taste of the perfect sunny spot we are enjoying right now from these!

What a sublime sunbathing spot! Now you just need to imagine the beautiful scent of the exquisite flowers (mostly by our good friend's How Green Nursery) and you could almost be here!
Our stone work in perfect symmetry, leading the eye towards the beautiful Griffin Glasshouse.
Gardeners from Hever Castle stepped in to undertake some of the planting... and haven't they done a fabulous job? These stunning photos by David Bartholomew really are spectacular...
The way the flowers tumble out of the urns is so romantic!
All the paths have Chilstone stone edging, perfectly separating the grassed areas.

More spots for relaxation!
We only wish we could send you the beautiful scent of these flowers wafting on the slight breeze...
Persephone stands gracefully at the edge of the garden the perfect statue for a Victorian garden.
Here are the incredible women behind this great feat! We cannot sing Wardrop Garden Designs praises enough, what a dream team!
A chance to take a breath after all the hard work!
We are so thrilled with the finished garden, and cannot thank our great Tunbridge Wells based photographer David Bartholomew enough for these photos!
