Inspired by the reclaiming of local city centre wasteland, Ready…Aim…Flower! shows how destructive influence gives way to regeneration; how plants colonise and thrive over time, reclaiming the landscape through a process of succession. With theatre and drama at the fore, Ready…Aim…Flower! uses a dominant sculpture of a gun as a metaphor for destructive influence, pointing towards a seating area where relaxation and reflection are possible. The journey through the garden takes visitors toward recovery; however, the opportunity to relax should not be taken for granted, as a reminder of how this process began is always with you. Closer to the gun, the planting is basic and representative of neglected land, with grasses, and dandelions; leading you to more colourful and established plants such as Centranthus, Buddleia, and Digitalis.
Congratulations to all the winners of this year's RHS People's Choice awards – the only vote to be decided by the public.
