This ornamental garden is owned by a young plant explorer who spends most of his time travelling, researching and collecting plants of interest. Inspiration for the design has come from visiting plants in their natural habitat all around the globe. One of the main features is the resin blocks that encase some of the owner’s favourite finds.

The design incorporates an outdoor office for planning and cataloguing his adventures and a greenhouse for growing and propagating plants. The naturalistic planting style attracts wildlife, and wildflowers have colonised parts of the garden whilst the owner has been away on his travels.
