Hampton Court to show KLC graduate garden

KLC garden design graduate Noemi Mercurelli is to exhibit at Hampton Court Flower Show.

Katie’s Lymphoedema Fund, in support of The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, was set up to champion Lymphoedema in memory of Katie Wohlrab Oliver, who struggled with the condition and succumbed to cancer in 2001 aged just 35. This year KLF will be creating a ‘Cut Flower Garden’ designed by Carolyn Dunster and Noemi Mercurelli, to be shown at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show in honour of Katie.

The garden will celebrate Katie’s life and raise awareness of the work that KLF does in raising money to train oncology nurses and other NHS practitioners in the treatment of Lymphoedema, in particular in Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD). MLD is a type of massage that reduces swelling from Lymphoedema, with the aim of moving fluid from the swollen area into an area where the lymphatic system is working normally.

Dunster is a professional florist and planting designer and set up her own business Simply Roses 15 years ago. Mercurelli is a graduate from the KLC School of Garden Design where she won the Great Dixter Award and was shortlisted for the prestigious RHS Young Designer of the Year.

Katie’s Lymphoedema Fund aims to train NHS practitioners in the management and treatment of Lymphoedema, thus increasing the availability of therapists which is still extremely limited.

Frogheath Landscapes is builder.

Cut flowers will be supplied by Kate Gibbons at Windmill Flowers.
