Andrew Fisher Tomlin has designed a garden to commemorate 150 years of plants and gardening at Warren House in Kingston, Surrey.
Rupert Samuelson of Sight Improvements was the landscaper at the 0.1ha site, part of the 1ha grounds of the conference and events centre.
Nurseryman Peter Tilbury of Jacksons of Chobham helped source the plants, many of which were found on behalf of Sir Harry Veitch and his family.
Veitch established Coombe Wood Nursery around Warren House, which had 4ha of grounds until 1986. The gardens include a Davidia involucrata, 50 Acer griseum and a large collection of magnolias.
The Good family bought the house in 2005 and commissioned Fisher Tomlin to design the new garden on an old meadow site.
Plant hunters such as EH Wilson and William Lobb found new varieties for the original Veitch gardens. For the new garden, plants came from 20 British nurseries.
