John Woods Nursery, based in Pettistree, Suffolk, supplied Cornus Venus, Hydrangea ‘Endless Summer', Hydrangea Endless Summer ‘Twist and Shout' lace cap and Coprosmia Pacific Sunset and Diervilla ‘Cool Splash'.
The idea behind the garden was to create a town-house front garden for an aspiring couple, representing their move up the property ladder to a home with a bigger garden for a young family.
A house façade fronts the garden with six sculptural urns, granite paving and a terrace. A path running down the garden overlooks a seat, ornamental apple tree, hornbeam screening hedges and trellis.
Journalist Peter Seabrook invited John Woods Nursery to sponsor the garden in Enfield as part of the National Garden Scheme, founded in 1927 to opening gardens of interest to the public.
