Living walls and tables – food for thought – Mandy Buckland @ RHS Hampton Court Palace

Gosh Mandy Buckland provided a great urban garden (complete with thin lines of living walls)  at this year’s Hampton Court show. A compact contemporary garden that I could definitely live with. It was the first garden I saw and soon became my favourite.

The garden featured strawberries growing in the walls and along the table top. Up until last Sunday I could have sworn that this trend was being bypassed by garden designers – its usually furniture designers that have been merging plants with furniture of late  – well I was wrong.

I should have asked about the plants under the table – does the dog end up sitting on them?

I think this garden would look great even with daily washing hung between the living walls.
