Well, what an experience our first stand at Hampton Court was. The months of hard work, planning and growing our show grasses certainly paid off. To win a Silver-gilt medal was beyond our expectations.
The natural garden display concept we developed, showcased our grasses in their full glory. Using only grasses within the show stand really demonstrated the versatility of different planting combinations within a small space and the judges agreed. They were very complimentary of our use of Karen Ongley Snook’s stunning glass fish sculptures that wove their way through the stand.
From the start, Our vision was that this would give show visitors an idea of the flexibility of grass planting within the modern garden and how a stunning planting scheme can be achieved in a small space with grasses only, resulting in vistas that provides interest throughout the seasons.
Whilst we were at Hampton Court, we were lucky enough to be featured on the BBC Hampton Court Palace Flower show series which aired on BBC2. You can see our interview with Toby Buckland towards the end of episode 3.
