Jade Goto is teaming up with skincare company Crabtree & Evelyn at this year's RHS Hampton Court Flower Show, to create a contemporary garden using a traditional English planting palette.

The Botanical Studio Garden will mimic a fragrance pyramid, with each terrace representing a different note found in a perfume. Evoking the perfume fields of Grasse, large planters of scented mono-planting will celebrate the use of single ingredients.

To the centre of the garden, a perfumer will practise her craft within a modern-day still room. The timber used will be Ulmus minor (elm), a species which botanist John Evelyn is said to have saved from extinction.

Complementing the timber, the use of copper and glass throughout the garden echoes the distillery equipment used historically in still rooms.

Designer Jade Goto runs a Brighton-based design practise. She draws on culture and fine art married with her love of planting to create her gardens. She has shown at RHS Chelsea Flower Show with the QR Code Garden and won Best in Show for her Austerity Garden at RHS Gardeners' World Live.

Goto's garden will be built by contractor Garden House Design.
