As many of you know, I have a soft spot for the Chelsea Flower Show in London and this year is no exception, with colleague and friend Phillip Johnson aiming for gold at this prestigious event. Fleming’s Nursery have been extraordinarily generous in the support of the Australian horticultural industry, so please go to their website to follow the progress or to send an email of support to the team that will be working tirelessly for the next 20 days straight!
“The 2013 Trailfinders Australian Garden presented by Fleming’s and designed by Phillip Johnson of Phillip Johnson Landscapes, is a showcase of Australia’s natural beauty and Mother Nature’s timeless design.
Crafted to showcase the seamless transition between house and garden, the 2013 Trailfinders Australian Garden presented by Fleming’s, aims to challenge conventional garden design while incorporating best environmental practice in urban surrounds.
Key features of the garden include a substantial billabong fed by a series of waterfalls, cascading over a huge stone gorge, which forms a breathtaking foundation for an architecturally designed studio.”
From everyone here at Ian Barker Gardens, we wish them every success! -Ian
