Celebrating 200 years of education & training
Garden designers Kim Parish of Landscapes of Distinction and Jon Wheatley of Stonebarn Landscapes have designed and created an exciting exhibit for the Royal Horticultural Society 200th anniversary of education and training.
Arches cover a sumptuous outside sofa area to create a platform for visitors to find out more on the broad and exciting range of careers in horticulture.
Raised planters have been hand crafted to enclose the exhibit with a series of paths representingthe diversity of routes into a horticultural career.
A hot array of exotic planting creates views and vistas with big bold leaves, structural foliage and
fiery colours forming a tropical paradise.
