Each year during the Chelsea Flower Show the Garden Museum asks the designer of a show garden to tell the story behind a masterpiece on Main Avenue.
This year we have asked Sarah Price who has designed the M&G Garden to speak, and she will be joined by Tom Stuart-Smith who has designed the Weston Garden in the Great Pavilion.
Each will speak about their experiences and inspiration for their respective designs for this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
For Sarah, the garden she has created expands on an idea that a wall, tree and seat can create a quiet and intimate place of repose. The garden is “a romanticised haven that will celebrate the expressive and sensual language of colour and texture, light and shadow.”
Tom has created an enclosed and enchanted space that emphasises a rich diversity of texture. It is a garden where everything to the smallest item is recycled; many of the plants have been to Chelsea before and are borrowed for the duration of the show.
In a Q&A, chaired by broadcaster and horticulturalist Wesley Kerr OBE, they will be joined by the team from Crocus who have built both gardens and sourced and nurtured their plants.
