Details

The RBC garden will reflect the work they are doing on the Blue Water project, which focuses on the preservation of freshwater.

The garden will, therefore, illustrate the idea that you can live sustainably and still maintain a beautiful garden through good design and understanding of the plants around you.

A third of the garden will be edible, with most plants coming from the Mediterranean where they need minimal water to thrive and grow. For those plants that will need artificial irrigation, the garden will also feature a water harvesting section showing that a garden can still be maintained whilst still reducing the water footprint.
