An explosion of colour with Lucy Summers Living
Our glorious garden, designed by garden guru Lucy Summers, will be one of the highlights of your day out at the Spring Fair. Lucy has created an engaging and colourful design inspired by ‘glamping’. The garden measures 9m X 6m and is bound to provoke comment with its jazzy 70s VW Camper Van complete with roof, planted with delicious fruits and vegetables. It will be evocative of all that’s great about British spring time; fruit trees beginning to blossom, spring flowers bursting out and a vintage beehive. Six fruit trees of approximately 2.5 metres high stand like sentinels at each corner and at the midpoints to add form and symmetry to the design. The containers housing the trees will even have an edible cushion covering of camomile or mustard cress! Visitors to the Fair can expect to see a variety of seasonal edible produce including tomatoes, aubergines and beans and the borders will be planted up with spring flowers.
The Lucy Summers Garden Design practice was established in 2003, as a boutique landscape design business creating beautiful gardens great and small, gardens that are original and inspirational and for which Lucy has won Gold and Silver medals at RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
Lucy is an experienced broadcaster and has presented a number of home-style and gardening programmes for ITV and BBC, as well as authoring six gardening books (Greenfingers Guides) and writing for a number of publications and various trade magazines. Last month Lucy won the Garden Media Guild award for Trade Journalist of the Year. The most recent string to Lucy’s bow is developing an expanding range of really effective garden care products and stylish home décor accessories.
