For the first time ever – an opportunity to see hanging together the three seasonal embroideries of RHS Garden Harlow Carr, created for us by the talented Richmond & Leyburn Embroidery Group. The scenes show tulips and Muscari in spring, the very best of perennial planting in the main borders at high summer, and the vibrant red Cornus stems set against striking silver birch trees in the Winter walk.

We took three photographs of the garden and cut them into 48 squares which were given to each of the embroiderers to interpret in their own individual way. The finished pieces were then put together like a jigsaw to re-create the whole pictures in embroidery form.
