“People do come to the show for inspiration,” says Pip. “I wanted them to be able to visualise their own garden when they saw my design. Due to the smaller plot size, there are no large sheds or greenhouses. Instead, I featured a built-in cupboard with tiered, natural stone planters to help the storage area blend in.”
This is Pip’s 17th show garden. Her last garden scooped a Gold medal at the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show. This is why she has been determined to maintain the standard at Malvern this spring and enlisted top garden suppliers, such as Bradstone, for help with her exhibit.
“Bradstone is a really good brand with beautiful stone and they’ve been great to work with,” explains Pip. “The garden featured calming, pastel colourings and their Natural Sandstone paving in Fossil Buff really complimented the tone of the garden.”
