Although the gardening show season is nearing its end in England, it is still going strong in other parts of the world. The Gardening World Cup is in its fourth year and every year had a different theme with this years being world peace.
Paul Hervey Brooks won the accolades for his best planting for the garden titled “What We Are”. He was crowned by the Japanese as the prince of British gardening. The garden has sweeping herbaceous borders and even nectar bars. It is believed that that garden is inspired from the classical beauty of the old English gardens. It is designed to help people contemplate and behold the beauty of the place.
New upcoming talents have been spotted in the field of public gardening. Bayley Luu Tomes from New Zealand has designed a wonderful fusion garden wherein he has combined Asian gardening ideals with the true flavours of New Zealand. He has mainly used glass bottles to construct the whole space and it is marvellous in its own way.
Lim In Chong, who is from Malaysia, sought inspiration from the Japanese gardening ideals. It is Hako Niwa which was the source of inspiration as a small garden has been turned into a whole world and can be looked from different angles and perspectives.
The garden has been named as ‘Introspection’ and tall split bamboo has been used to cover the corners. There are only two entrances for the garden and this very concept is unique in itself. It was this stunning display of plants that won both gold and the top award in this gardening display.
