BBC Local Radio and the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Design a Garden Competition 2016.
The overall theme is ‘Feel Good Gardens’ that reflect the area of the country from which the entrant hails. The design is for a small front garden measuring 6m x 4m.
My design is called ‘Feeling Up in the Downs’ – A Sussex Perspective. The inspiration comes from the environment – White Cliffs, chalk downland and beaches, combines with local economy past and present – fishing; wine and beer making. Planting has been chosen to reflect the windswept, dry chalky conditions providing scent; colour and movement with culinary benefits.
