Brewin Dolphin has partnered with the Incorporation of Gardeners to host a ‘Secret Garden’ event at which The Incorporation of Gardeners has donated a sculpture to Glasgow Botanic Gardens, which was commissioned to commemorate the Commonwealth Games in 2014 and provide a lasting reminder for future generations of this historic event held in the city of Glasgow.
The sculpture, named The Commonwealth Tree, was designed and created by David McAllister and his team at Glasgow Sculpture Studios. Peter Stewart & Douglas Robertson of Tradstocks of Thornhill were responsible for the construction of the whinstone plinth on which the four-dimensional corteen steel sculpture is mounted.
The commemoration forms part of a series of ‘Secret Garden’ events run by Brewin Dolphin around the country, which are hosted by Brewin Dolphin’s Chelsea Flower Show garden designers from the last five years.
Rosy Hardy, Brewin Dolphin’s 2016 Chelsea Flower Show garden designer and winner of more than 20 RHS gold medals will be speaking at the event, together with Stephen Martin, head of Brewin Dolphin’s Glasgow office, who will act as master of ceremonies.
