London Glades: Forest Garden Solutions For Urban Spaces at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show

Here is a wonderful forest garden – created for the recent RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show – a beautiful and inspiring space that hopefully will lead to the creation of many, many more such gardens.

About Anni Kelsey

I love forest gardens and forest gardening, nature, reading and everything good about being alive. I have written two books - the garden of equal delights (2020) - about the principles and practice of forest gardening; and Edible Perennial Gardening (2014) - about growing perennial vegetables in polycultures, which is basically forest gardening concentrating on the lower layers.

    That certainly seems like a beautiful garden. I think that they seem to have achieved a naturalistic planting quite well. What I also found interesting was that theuy achieved a gold award for it. Normally all your plants have to be perfect for that, but the review says that they deliberately included plants up and coming, and past their best. That suggests times are changing even in ‘the establishment’ of the RHS.

    I love it how the UK is beginning to take on forest garden as an aesthetic, ‘vogue’ form of gardening -in which I think you’ve had a notable hand. So far in the US it is only prized for its productivity without work. Most can’t wrap their head around a ‘tidy’ forest (the fact they want it ‘tidy’ is half the issue). I find many are intrigued by a sort of temperate tropical look though. I hope this will become more popular as I refine it. This is actually what much of our native fauna looks like in its pristine state -pawpaws and the like. I’m glad you’re much further ahead in recognizing the beauty of your native ecology. Thanks for sharing.
