Plant Heritage awarded silver medal at Hampton Court Flower show 2012

Plant Heritage is the world’s leading garden plant conservation charity. Formerly known as the National Council for the Conservation of Plants & Gardens, Plant Heritage brings together the talents of botanists, horticulturalists and conservationists and the dedication of keen amateur and professional gardeners in order to encourage the conservation of cultivated plants in the British Isles.   Plant Heritage supports and publishes research into these plants, their origins, their historical and cultural importance and their environments, and helps to educate the public in the importance of cultivated plant conservation.   Garden designer Claudia de Yong was asked to design a water feature based on the five continents and as the garden was judged by the RHS it needed to be scientifically accurate.   The water feature included a selection of our artificial rocks, with the largest rock incorporating a small waterfall.
