Architectural structures at the Chelsea flower show

Blog post Published by

What a treat to photograph at the RHS Chelsea flower show again this year.  The gardens are always inspiring but often it’s the architectural forms and structures that make the main feature / base for the garden that’s the most exciting element for me.

So many to highlight …  Sam Ovens relaxing cedar wood design for Cloudy Bay was beautiful.. reminded me a little of the bellows of an old camera.   Another favourite was Japanese designer Kazuyuki Ishihara for Henri-Sentei project in the Artisan gardens with moss walls, water windows housing a mini.

Strikingly bold and beautiful and another Chelsea gold medal winner was the block of granite which housed a garden only visible through small peepholes in the cube.  Designed by Martin Cook and Gary Breeze for the Marble and Granite Centre suitably placed in the Fresh gardens… good to see something new and completely different.
