Future Spaces Gardens

Did you know...

  • The dazzling flower colour is provided by a range of late summer performers including Crocosmias, Cannas, day lilies, Echinacea and red leaved grass Imperata cylindrica 'Rubra'. Standing boldly above are specimen trees of Aralia elata, with bold, rather exotic foliage and spine clad stems, great hardy plants for adding a tropical touch
  • The standout plant in the garden, and placed centrally in a square orange planter, is a wonderful specimen of Yucca rostrata, which has long slender rapier- like, silver-blue foliage atop a slowly developing trunk. It is hardy in sheltered gardens, grown in a hot, sunny well drained position
  • The art on show in this garden has been created by the designer's daughter. The garden is said to be influenced in part by the work of British abstract artist and architect Victor Pasmore

It incorporates large reproductions by Georgina Collins of original paintings as focal points. The surrounding planting includes massed birches, moss beds, native scrub (rosebay willowherb) as well as other plants with exotic colours and forms.
