This week, we explore one of the artisan gardens from this year’s Chelsea Flower Show, the Trugmaker’s Garden.
The garden focuses on the skills of traditional Sussex trugmakers creating baskets from willow and sweet chestnut.
The overall look creates an idyllic and nostalgic atmosphere reminding us about old times when tradition and folklore were part of the everyday life.
The planting combination is vibrant – the orange coloured Geums looked fiery with the blue Delphiniums in the background.
All these equipment were laid out in an organised mess – like they were there for a hundred years. Not an easy look to achieve when building a show garden. Designed by Serena Fremantle and Tina Vallis, this garden well deserved the gold medal.
