RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2015 Show Gardens - Silver Gilt - The M&G Garden

The M&G Garden

  • Silver GiltSilver Gilt
The M&G Garden features a two-storey oak-framed building inspired by Vita Sackville-West’s writing room at Sissinghurst, a large natural swimming pond edged with water loving plants, a woodland of river birches, acacias and acers, and a garden with tumbling roses and peonies. The design draws on Jo Thompson’s local influences, from the vernacular architectural features synonymous with the Sussex and Kent countryside where she currently lives to the use of Purbeck stone from her childhood in Dorset.

This romantic garden represents a quintessentially British restorative retreat, where visitors can unwind away from the hustle and bustle of city living.
