After winning a gold medal last year with his first ever garden at an RHS show, ‘The South West Water Green Garden’, garden designer Tom Simpson returns to RHS Hampton Court this year with Cancer Research UK. ‘Pledge Pathway To Progress’, is designed to raise awareness of the importance pledging gifts in wills has in funding Cancer Research UK’s progress. The garden is open to visitors throughout the show and they can explore this wonderful space with its striking curved layout. The spiral pathway which features CED Stone CEDEC Silver footpath gravel meanders through richly scented planting including plants associated with cancer treatments. Dotted amongst the planting are carved timber posts, some etched with the names of people who have pledged a gift in their will and some marking important milestones in cancer research. The centre space is a sunken seating area where visitors can stop for a moments reflection.
