Wow, spring is really underway now with the trees looking feathery, bulbs bursting out of the ground and landscape enquiries everywhere. How very positive it’s all looking.
Current work being completed by the team at Sandstone includes planting a 3 acre site in the Weald near Tonbridge to provide wonderful summer colour, building a lovely small courtyard garden in Tunbridge Wells and completing the modern oak framed garage.
Preparation is well underway for this year’s Hampton Court Garden with Ali Dempster having had a very constructive meeting with Garden designer and R.H.S. judge James Alexander- Sinclair and Chelsea gold medal winner, designer Ann-Marie Powell; the appointed mentors of the winning designers. Those designs will address the theme of a “Feel Good Garden” and the winners are going to be announced in May. So watch this space for more detail on the build for those gardens which commences in June in order to be ready for the show from the 5th -10th July.
