Gardening For A Sustainable Future
My favourite garden at Chelsea this year was Nigel Dunnett's RHS Greening Grey Britain Garden. I loved his design at Hampton Court 2015 with the green roof binstore so much that I designed one for my own garden which now has an established green roof with thriving succulents, flowers and herbs.
This year Nigel's garden offered more practical ideas on how to create sustainable community gardens and edible crops in tiny balcony gardens, all within a beautiful space with vivid, yet soft planting of black elderflowers, euphorbia, camassia, salvia and dianthus. I've written more about the garden on my blog...
We're always trying to garden with the environment, both in my own garden and in our community garden, so I'd be really interested to know what are your most successful tips for sustainable gardening and which gardens have inspired you to garden more sustainably. Thanks
