The Welcome Garden

The Welcome Garden is a place for visitors to relax and recline, plan their day at the show and participate in the various talks from top designers and growers, as well as tours that will take place regularly throughout the day.

Following the success of the inaugural 2018 Welcome Garden by Phillip Withers, award-winning landscape designer Mark Browning will create this year’s Welcome Garden.

Bringing almost 40 years of landscaping prowess, Browning will design a space for visitors to congregate at the show, which unlike its Show Garden counterparts, will be completely tactile and interactive.

The garden will incorporate sleek architectural concrete pavers, planters and spheres from Anston SVC, and will use sustainable Porta timber to create the pergola.

Browning’s show-stopper is set to be polycarbonate ringlock curtains from Kaynemail – an architectural, award-winning mesh created by Lord of the Rings weapon designer Kayne Horsham. Cyclone rated and 70% solar blocking, the shimmering curtains are set to create an ethereal wonderland for show-goers.
