Hampton Court Flower Show 2005




Tom’s first show garden, quite literally built by friends and family – some of whom are finally on speaking terms with him once more. He bought small plants from Orchard Dene Nursery and, under their expert guidance, grew them on into show specimens.

The garden celebrates Tom’s love of rural craft with the construction of a Devon cob summerhouse thatched in Norfolk reed. All of the timber was salvaged from a building site.

It was here that he developed a ‘ribbon’ style of planting that he still uses today. Here, a mix of Stachys officinalis ‘Hummelo’ and Selinum wallichianum weave through swathes of Deschampsia cespitosa.
