Chelsea show gardens

Created by Anna Kapuvari

Show gardens are a great way to collect ideas for your garden. In these blog series, each week we are going to explore one show garden with an idea that we particularly liked. This week is the Breakthrough Breast Cancer Garden form the Chelsea Flower Show 2015.


Designed by Ruth Wilmott, this garden symbolises the breakthrough in breast cancer research when founded by charity. The inspiration came from genetic research, and we can see the DNA lines represented in the garden as well.


Our favourite part is the black marble water feature adding a mirroring effect to this wonderful Fresh Garden.


The planting consists of soft colours – from whites to pinks which are framed with the white trunks of Betula trees. Lupins, Irises, Digitalis and Anemones are the main herbaceous plants.
