Chelsea in Bloom 2018
Built by The Landscaping Consultants
A miniature garden brimming with white flowers in varying shades and species sits outside Sumosan Twiga contained in a large verdigris copper planter.
With inspiration drawn from the renowned White Garden at Sissinghurst Castle in Kent; ivory, pearl and alabaster hues pop against the dark restaurant facade and reference the Royal Wedding taking place during the same month as the Chelsea in Bloom festival.
Rebecca Newnham’s ‘White Lotus’ appears to float amongst the blooms. The imperfect, patinated finish of the bespoke planter represents the murky aquatic conditions from which the Nelumbo nucifera (Sacred Lotus) emerges and unfolds, with its pure and perfect petals intact - a symbol of love conquering all.
After the festival, the bespoke trough and all plants were rehomed in private gardens
