One up for the Joneses as Capel Manor garden wins sponsorship

A Capel Manor show garden for an upwardly mobile couple has proved classy enough to win sponsorship.

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.

Other suppliers include Marshalls, Urbis Design and Countryside Home Improvements, and some of the elements of the garden were exhibited at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

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.
