We were delighted to be able to provide a number of plants to garden designers for their show gardens at this year’s RHS Malvern Spring Festival.
We had a lovely update from Martyn Wilson from Wilson Associates Garden Design. We provided him with a range of seasonal topical shrubs and herbaceous plants for his garden.
He said: “It was a privilege to design and build our show garden ‘Time is a Healer’ for Primrose Hospice at this year’s RHS Malvern Spring Festival. Receiving the People’s Choice Award as well as an RHS Bronze Medal were a great reward for everybody involved with the garden.
“In what has been a difficult growing season this year, the help and support of the Wyevale Nurseries team and particularly Adrian Hoare and Oliver Phipps has been invaluable. It was great to see them both at the show and welcome them into the garden. I look forward to working with Wyevale Nurseries again in the future.”
‘Time is a Healer’ provides a space for counselling the bereaved with a focus on children losing a loved one. The garden is designed to build awareness of the work of Primrose Hospice and the many support services they offer to the community.
The planting explores the changing emotions of bereavement from periods of depression represented by dark foliage and flowers, moving to a mixed palette of colours representing confused emotions. Finally, a calming palette of greens and whites for those who reach peace and acceptance. Hedging and trees offer a sense of enclosure.
