Perennial’s The Laskett – An Autobiographical Garden

Show Gardens

The design represents the Laskett Garden in Spring, including real elements of The Laskett Garden, from architectural elements to masses of spring primulas.

Formal design elements, such as obelisks and standard topiary, sit among beds of more informal herbaceous and bulb planting, showing how comfortable formal spaces can coexist with lush and interesting diverse planting.
