Squire’s garden, the Natural Tranquillity Garden, is designed to create a space of tranquillity, beauty and scent enjoyable at any time of day but particularly in the evening after a busy day. The garden is attractive to wildlife, using natural materials and plants that are readily available to the gardening public and proven to perform well.
"We’re honoured to receive this award," said Colin Squire, "Ian has done a fantastic job in designing a garden that will inspire amateur gardeners, using plants that he knows perform well and are readily available to the gardening public. We’ve exhibited a garden at the show since it began in 1990 and are delighted to be here again, for the 22nd year, and with a silver gilt medal under our belts."
The garden's emphasis was to create a white garden planned in such a way as to highlight the spectacular foliage and architectural forms of the plants. The brief was that it had to contain ideas that visitors could achieve in their own garden.
The Squire’s Natural Tranquillity Garden can be seen in the floral marquee at the Hampton Court Place Flower Show from the 3 – 8 July.
