Hampton Court Flower Show 2006




Tom is a great fan of artist Simon Carter and was thrilled to be able to design a show garden using his work as the main influence. Simon’s bold use of colour is reflected in the planting with base colours of burnt orange, blackcurrant and lime green combined with fireworks of contrasting and complimentary colours.

Planting that exhibited this include a carpet of frothy lime green Alchemilla mollis and Prussian blue Aconitum carmichaelii rockets shooting into the sky, and the sparklers of Allium albopilosum combined with Erigeron “Darkest of all”.

Many elements of this garden live on in Tom’s own garden in Suffolk.
