Every year, Practicality Brown have the pleasure of working with talented Garden Designers at the Royal Horticultural Society’s prestigious Garden Shows and this July we supplied six gardens at Hampton Court with 75m of our Instant Hedge as well as five semi-mature trees.

Five gardens used our Practical Native Mix Instant Hedge, which has plants that are all native to the UK, reflecting traditional country hedgerows and are therefore very wildlife friendly. Grown here at our nursery in Iver, we have taken great care with these instant hedging solutions to supply a premium quality product.

BBC Springwatch Garden (Feature Garden)

This special Feature Garden, designed by Jo Thompson, was inspired by Kate Bradbury’s wildlife garden for BBC Springwatch. Our Practical Native Mix Instant Hedge reinforces the wildlife benefits.

Through Your Eyes (Show Garden)

  • Silver medal winner

This Show Garden was designed by Lawrence Roberts of Elements Garden Design, and featured a large William Roobrouck sculpture. Our Native Mix formed the borders to this thoughtful garden.

The Naturecraft Garden (Lifestyle Garden)

  • Silver medal winner and Peoples’ Choice Award for Lifestyle & Global Impact Garden

Designed by Pollyanna Wilkinson, and inspired by botanical crafts, the garden explored how we can create beautiful objects from the plants that we grow. Our Native Mix instant hedge created a framework for the garden’s features; we also supplied the trees for this beautiful garden.

The Urban Pollinator Garden (Lifestyle Garden)

  • Silver Gilt medal winner

The garden, designed by Caitlin McLaughlin, was a magnet for bees and other insects, fusing design, function and wildlife-friendly values. Our Native Mix Instant Hedge helped support a range of wildlife and promote biodiversity. This garden is now rehomed at Cransley Hospice in Kettering, Northamptonshire, for patients, visitors and staff to enjoy.

Stop and Pause Garden (Lifestyle Garden)

  • Gold medal winner Best Lifestyle & Global Impact Garden and Best Construction Award

Designed by Dave Green, this garden was a calm, still and quiet space offering mental wellbeing and meditation opportunities. Our Native Mix Instant Hedge is integral to the design. 
The garden has been donated to Solihull Hospital Charity and will be reconstructed in the hospital grounds.

Outdoor Living Garden (Lifestyle Garden)

  • Silver Gilt medal winner

This garden is a nod to the growing trend of outdoor living and alfresco dining, designed by Robert Grimstead. UK grown Purple Beech Instant Hedge provides a framework to this stylish garden.

Phytosanctuary Garden

 

A few weeks later, our Practical Instant Hedge was part of a gold medal winning garden at Tatton Park. The beautiful garden was designed by Kristian Reay and had Mediterranean themed planted to raise awareness of Xylella fastidiosa disease which poses a threat to many of our much-loved plants. Kristian was announced as the winner of the Young Designer of the year 2019 at the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park.
