Spring Garden

An explosion of colour with Lucy Summers Living

Spring garden
 

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 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 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.

As well as being a stupendous sight, our Spring Garden will play host to a series of talks and demos on everything from bee keeping to growing your own lettuces. See timetable below for the programme of events.
