WINNER Best in Show at RHS Chelsea Flower Show! – Latest
The M&G garden at RHS Chelsea Flower Show has one the Best in Show Garden. We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to have worked with James Basson of Scape Design and Peter Harket of Crocus to bring their design to life.
‘Inspired by an abandoned Maltese quarry, The M&G Garden features monumental blocks of limestone planted with grasses, evergreens, perennials and ground cover unique to the arid Mediterranean island. The plot is divided into a series of zones, each with its own ecology, from shrubland through garrigue landscape to cliff top. The message behind the designer’s creation is that humans need to take action to preserve the fragile environment of our planet. Sustainable water disposal, recycling and composting: all are vital if Malta is to save its distinct and delicate landscapes.’

“a monumental evocation of a Maltese quarry where nature and a gardener of exceptional talent have worked together to heal the scars of excavation.” – The Telegraph
