WARDROP & STEVENSON’S

A Growing Obsession

For RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2015

 

 

A Growing Obsession reflects the ornate grandeur of the Victorian age. 

It is inspired by Jane Loudon’s Instructions in Gardening for Ladies and is designed to be viewed from the terrace.  Gently banked Victorian style flowerbeds exhibit floral scroll patterns alongside paths for promenading.  Cooling ferneries are set into ‘Pulhamite’ rockeries, a fashionable accessory of the time.  The glasshouse hosts exotic plants collected in the golden age of plant hunting.
