With the help of garden designer Antonia Young and contractor Jeff Rosenblatt, Cancer Research UK brought the first ever virtual reality tribute garden to the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.

The Cancer Research UK’s Life Garden was a tribute to all those who have left a gift to the charity in their will, a celebration and a thank you for their generosity.

Welcoming visitors into the garden wass CED Stone Group’s CEDEC Gold, a firm but porous footpath gravel that retains moisture yet allows any excess to flow through. A mix of granite and quartzite, the CEDEC Gold perfectly complemented the colour scheme of the planting.

Developed following a request during the construction of Canary Wharf for a footpath gravel that was free of limestone so as not to affect the pH of the soil around the trees, CEDEC grew almost entirely through word of mouth and has now developed into a SUDS compliant footpath gravel.
