andy’s chelsea diary: trialing the garden

Our garden is set in woodland and the silver birches we have selected will have new fresh leaves on them in May to give to the garden a real sense of optimism. The trees are now all on site at the Crocus nursery where we are working with the team from Landform to create a virtual garden to check the layout and design of the garden before creating it for real on site in May.

Now the larger specimens are in, we will bring in the rest of the planting. It’s important at this stage to get an idea of how the garden will physically take shape although it will all look very different now than it will do at the end of May when everything is in the ground on Main Avenue at Chelsea.
