The second week of the build mainly consisted of planting! At the beginning of the week the final part of the hard landscaping was completed with final section of paving installed. This then left us with the ‘small’ task of planting the garden! This really is the part that we love – we genuinely believe that planting brings a garden to life. Something we never thought we’d complain about was the sun! But as our garden was a garden suited for wet plants it did cause a constant battle for us to keep them watered – a battle we won!
The opening on the Monday was a busy day with press and even a few celebrities stopping by – culminating in a fantastic firework display over Hampton court Palace – an amazing night!
We loved every aspect of the show and will hopefully get the chance to exhibit at an RHS show at some point soon. Our RHS Silver Medal is a proud achievement for all concerned with Living Gardens.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all staff at The APL, The RHS and everybody who came to visit our garden and offered kind words – Thank you!
