Small gardens at Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2011
Information about the small gardens at Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2011
Small garden Heathers in Harmony, designed by Will Quarmby, has been judged the Best Small Garden, and been awarded a Gold Medal. The garden is designed for an urban space, making most of the vertical where horizontal space is limited.
Thanks to the number of different heathers used, its also a haven for bumblebees. Some of the flowers are so large, for example, Daboecia flowers, that bees chew a small hole near the nectaries so they can harvest the nectar.
