Meadow-style planting in a small garden

Garden designer Tom Massey talked about how you can achieve a natural, flowing style of meadow garden in your own space, even if that's just a tiny front garden

Taking inspiration from his Yeo Valley Garden, which was designed for Chelsea 2020, Tom demonstrated how to plant a small front garden to encourage wildlife. Using organically-grown plants, this scaled-down interpretation of a wildflower meadow is perfect for an urban or rural setting, and helps play an important role in encouraging natural diversity.
