Juliet’s Chelsea Gold Medal

/, Plant Combinations/Juliet’s Chelsea Gold Medal

 Juliet Sargeant won a Gold Medal this year with her Anti-slavery garden brining awareness to the bonded labour being used throughout the world (It is estimated that their are more slaves now than their has been in the entire history of the world combined)

She told me she was ‘sick of pinks and blues’ and went for a hot pallet.

She has used bright red Lupins, copper coloured Verbascums, pastel coloured and bright orange Geums, Kent Pride Irises and purple Heuchera and Fireglow Euphorbia for the hot colours with Sesleria grass and Ammi Major (the white carrot flower) as a soft context for the other flowers.

It took my breath away when I first saw it.

About the Author:

In 2006 I formed Glorious Gardens, gathering together skilled practitioners to offer not just design but implementation of these designs and maintenance packages where we could look after the gardens once we had created them. Throughout my career I have designed gardens to inspire people with the heart aching beauty of nature, with shapes, colours, moods and proportions to pleasure the body and calm and delight the mind. I am also an artist who works with colour and abstract shapes and I bring this sensitivity to the 4 dimensions of a garden. I am very good at listening to clients and I’m able to draw out the essence of what a client wants for their outdoor space.
