Gardening Amidst Ruins explores a lesser known but compellingly imaginative facet of Brown’s garden legacy: our aim has been to evoke a feeling of one of his aviary/menagerie gardens.
Brown had a penchant for gardening in ruins – for saving, maintaining and revitalising fragments of medieval moats and dilapidated ramparts with a view to creating new gardens within them. Sadly, none of these gardens survive, though we know that they were, like so many of his innovations, whimsical and ingenious.
This garden aspires to breathe life into these vanished gardens, and attempts to convey the playfulness of a forgotten aspect of 18th-century English gardening.
Best Construction Award 2016 has been won by Wyevale Garden Centres with Historic Royal Palaces for their garden exhibit.
