Clifton Nurseries produces pop-up garden in London railway terminal for Chelsea Fringe

Clifton Nurseries is working with a marketing firm to produce a pop-up garden as part of the Chelsea Fringe Festival.

The Greening of St Pancras International Station will be open to St Pancras visitors for two weeks and aims to provide a natural, calm space for busy Londoners to enjoy.

The garden installation was conceived by marketing firm Improcom and designed by a team led by Clifton managing director Matthew Wilson with a French theme.

It is inspired by the paintings of Monet and Renoir and hopes to entice through smell using lavender, jasmine and rosemary. It will open on Sunday and is one of several pop-up gardens which will feature as part of this year’s Chelsea Fringe.

The alternative gardening festival launches today and runs from Saturday until 8 June.
