Project year: 2017

Gold Medal, 'Best Garden For A Changing World' award
The London Glades show garden has been designed to appear like a beautiful oasis on the edge of a peaceful forest, complete with CED-donated boulders, wild flowers, trees, shrubs and perennials. Despite the garden looking nothing like a traditional ‘allotment’, much of the garden is edible.
Designers Jon Davies and Andreas Christodoulou, of Future Gardens London, wanted to create a city space in tune with nature whilst demonstrating new easy-to-grow, edible planting that Hampton visitors might not have seen before, or even known about.
Jon and Andreas were looking for large boulders that had to be sourced from the UK, have a very natural look and be shaped so that garden visitors can sit and relax or meditate. They were immediately taken with our large Black and White Gneiss boulders which fitted the brief perfectly.
