The ‘Resilience’ Show Garden will focus on the health and wellbeing benefits of plants in the urban landscape, and how every garden has a part to play for the whole community. It will be a physical demonstration of how an urban garden can essentially be good for our wellbeing which in turns improves our resilience.
‘Resilience’ will be multifaceted picking up on the below themes:
Site specifics: The garden will be situated on the edge of the lake to provide a stunning backdrop and present a relaxing and harmonious garden within an urban context. Patrons should feel immersed and relaxed within its presence.
Aspirational: Focus on improving the understanding and link between plants and health and wellbeing, and improved resilience.
Practical: Demonstrate a stunning and diverse garden that is appropriate and practical for home gardeners. Show solutions for the right plant in the right place. Focus on health and wellbeing benefits of plants, as well as commercial value of a well landscaped garden.
