Built by Rob Carr (a former grave digger) and gardening friends from the Co-operative Funeralcare, this is a garden of mourning for Byron’s “Loves Last Adieu”.
The central cupola has an abundance of tender flowers in shades of black, purple and white with Dichondra argentea ‘Silver Falls’ forming a shroud through which to view the monumental urn overflowing with Petunia BLACK VELVET (‘Balpevac’) and Euphorbia BREATHLESS BLUSH (‘Balbreblus’), which represents the poet’s last love. In the corner there is an old abandoned coffin bier while to the left the poet may sit and mourn.
