A Fruitful Garden - Silver Gilt Flora

‘A Fruitful Garden’ is an evolution of the company’s Upwardly Mobile display, created for RHS Chelsea Flower Show last year before being transferred to Capel Manor College, the UK’s National Gardening Centre in Enfield, north London. While the design creates an entirely new look, A Fruitful Garden retains most of the hard landscaping of Upwardly Mobile and combines many of its plants with new additions, along with a new perimeter fence.

The garden, designed by, DeakinLock, will form part of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show Four Generations feature, sponsored by The Sun. It will demonstrate how a new homeowner can develop an existing front garden to grow fruit alongside existing planting with minimal fuss or outlay. Ease of maintenance and optimum use of limited space were key factors in the design.
