Trending: green roofs, dramatic boulders and mini forests!
Woodlands and forests abound at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show, suggesting that we’ll be seeing a lot more domestic woodland gardens in the future, including ‘mini forests’ in smaller urban gardens.
Aside from Kate Middleton's Back to Nature garden, most notable is the Resilience Garden designed by Sarah Eberle FSGD, which showcases the 'forests of the future' by using trees that are resilient to climate change. Andy Sturgeon FSGD has also chosen a woodland landscape, colonising it with young trees, ferns and jewel-like flowers; while Andrew Duff MSGD has created a sustainable woodland clearing featuring bio diverse trees that celebrate the environmental benefits of woodland. Elsewhere, Jonathan Snow brings the temperate rainforests of South America to the show.
