Hoblyn reveals sculpture garden

An undulating sculpture constructed from storm-blown giant redwood timber forms the centrepiece of Thomas Hoblyn's RHS Chelsea Flower Show garden this year.

Following on from the gold medal he received for an entry in the urban garden category in 2008, Hoblyn has teamed up with Foreign & Colonial Investment Trust to create a larger show garden for the event in May.

The garden explores the themes of sustainability and adaptation using a contemporary wetland habitat for inspiration.

Hoblyn said: "While studying at Kew I went on an adventure to seek out surviving colonies of plants in the bogs of North Carolina and I was keen to use this experience in my own designs."
