Creating a Conceptual Garden at The Hampton Court Palace Flower Show was a wonderful opportunity to tell a storey using landscape design. At this years show, I focused on the Ash tree Dieback disease, and linked this with Dutch Elm disease that similarly ravaged the UK countryside in the 1960s and 1970s.

To be awarded an RHS Gold Medal for the garden was a fantastic achievement that I am immensely proud of. Equally successful, was the really positive media interest in the garden, and the huge public support received at the show………..A truly memorable experience.
