Greenhance: The Garden in the Egg

Show Gardens

Did you know...

  • First shown at the Moscow Flower Show in 2017, this garden is inspired by the famous Fabergé eggs, but instead of precious stones inside there is plenty of colour from flowers and foliage
  • As the sculptural egg opens, movement and interest are created by steam and music emanating from the centre of it

About the Garden

Inspired by Fabergé eggs, which contained a hidden surprise, this is the world’s first garden to grow inside a 3.5m-high rustic metal egg. Set to a time schedule, the egg opens and closes automatically, as if delivering a performance to a watchful audience. 

As the egg opens, music, light, fog and water effects herald the surprise inside and a moment of wonder, as if new life is born.

This garden is appearing as part of the international exchange programme between RHS Malvern Spring Festival and Moscow Flower Show.
