RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2014
Award: Silver Gilt Medal
Designed by: Bartholomew Landscaping (concept by Stoke-on-Trent City Council)
Built by: Bartholomew Landscaping
Sponsored by: Bartholomew Landscaping
The concept behind the Positively Stoke-on-Trent garden has been created by the City Council Team, and the garden is being developed and delivered by Bartholomew Landscaping. The design represents a city with a new clarity of purpose and sources of energy. It draws on the city’s natural resources and plugs directly into the new dynamics.
The garden’s clear lines, circuits, solar panels and high-tech materials reflect the technological revolution. The glass pavilion reflects water, earth and air; the city’s emerging sustainable energy ambitions. The planting is inspired by nature’s re-colonisation of Stoke-on-Trent, reconnecting the city to nature and a cleaner and greener future.
The garden conveys Stoke-on-Trent’s energy as a dynamic and creative place of opportunity for all.
Moorcroft Pottery have refined traditional techniques to provide bespoke sculptures in the form of ceramic globes, featuring some of the beautiful plants used in the garden.
