Indoor Garden Design in London’s Highgate has had a bumper year, winning aBALI award for Interior Landscaping: Installation and 15 awards from eFIG. As the corporate market has contracted, so the firm has continued its growth into the events market, with its Living with Nature Exhibition, most prominently at St Pancras Station and a collaborative venture with the University of Exeter at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
