RHS Malvern Spring Festival

We’ve been involved in a project which is a first for us, collaborating with Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trusts (BBOWT) with Future Nature, Oxford Garden Design and Jamie Langlands Gardens on a show garden for this years RHS Malvern Spring Festival. Central to the theme of The Wildlife Trusts: Wilder Spaces garden is biodiversity and we have worked together to demonstrate how wildlife habitats can be designed into the structure of a garden whilst retaining its beauty. We have designed the pavilion which is constructed entirely from reclaimed materials and topped with a living roof.

The RHS Malvern Spring Festival runs from 11th – 14th May and is the first of the RHS season of flower shows. Tickets available here.
