Details

This year Garden designer Caitlin McLaughlin caused a buzz at Hampton Court Palace with her entry ‘The Urban Pollinator Garden’ sponsored by Warner’s Gin.

The garden was designed as a place for the owners to relax and connect with nature somewhere they could surround themselves with the unsung heroes of our gardens, the pollinators. A haven for insects and pollinators, specifically bees the garden featured a sculptural habitat wall running the length of the garden. The contemporary honeycomb shapes were packed with twigs and branches for solitary bees to nest and Bee Bricks from Green & Blue also featured in the wall. Hexagonal paving featured in the garden and bee-printed tiles will identify entrances to underground bumblebee nests. The planting will also encourage solitary bees and other pollinators to thrive, which in turn helps to support a range of wildlife and promote biodiversity.
