Colour Box Garden

By garden designer Charlie Bloom. The Colour Box garden is a celebration of people helping people within the horticultural community. It has no conceptual purpose or meaning.

The designer simply set out to build a backdrop so that the plants could take centre stage.

It is also full of colour - nothing muted here! The garden is the result of asking for 'help' - the vision was to produce something beautiful, despite having no financial sponsorship, and shows what can be achieved with a small budget.

The team of people and trades who are giving their time to help this project have come together through the active and supportive horticultural Twitter community.
