‘Feeling Up in the Downs’ – Hampton Court BBC Competition entry

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 thGD 2a hampton courte 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.
