So who is designing a garden for Hampton court then ?

Bunny is referring to a feature on the One Show on Wednesday night. Viewers are being invited to design a family garden, which will then be constructed, by experts, at this year's RHS Hampton Court.

That edition of the One Show can be seen on iplayer here:

The section about the competition can be seen by moving the cursor to 24 minutes.

  • having a go for fun wont be able to enterimage i count as trade 

  • I'm tinkering with a design for this.  Not really done this sort of thing before, I believe the RHS will be providing the plants but I don't know how they're going to make them look established etc.  Its weird trying to do a plan like this as you would usually get some inspiration from the house / style and any existing features.  8 x 8 is such a blank canvas!

    I would have liked to have a go, but don't live in UK so not allowed.
