Phil Game, Pure Folly
In this garden we enter an imagined world where A A Milne is writing in his woodland shelter. As he writes, he is inspired by his son Christopher Robin playing with his toys – the original Winnie the Pooh and all the other characters. This is a garden of childhood make believe and adult creativity. There is an Arts and Crafts feel to the shelter with glass bottles and bubbles in a cob wall, which is placed at the end of a large country garden – a writer’s retreat and a child’s chance to play and use his imagination.
Winnie the Pooh made his first public appearance in 1925. Like Botanica travellers, Winnie has a love of discovery and sets off on his imagined worldwide travels, enjoying life’s journey to the full.
Congratulations to all the winners of this year's RHS People's Choice awards – the only vote to be decided by the public.
We're a UK charity established to share the best in gardening. We want to enrich everyone's life through plants, and make the UK a greener and more beautiful place.
