The incredible power of the human heart and Sir Peter Blake’s unique pop art style have come together to inspire the British Heart Foundation’s (BHF) garden. Sponsored by Brewin Dolphin and created by Ann-Marie Powell, it celebrates the BHF’s 50th birthday and the Mending Broken Hearts Appeal.

The garden, which is sponsored by Brewin Dolphin, highlights the healing properties of plants. It includes fine specimens of Salix caprea, a plant that provided clues which contributed to the development of aspirin. Arching structures signify the movement of veins and arteries. For more information on the garden, visit the BHF website.

Expert commentary by Chris Young - Editor of The Garden

The clear element of this garden is the bold use of bright red and presence of metal. Though not to everyone’s taste the colour theme fits very well with the planting and there is a good balance achieved. If you like the colour red then you’ll find the garden works very well.
