Show Garden: The Sunburst Garden

Established exhibitors Simon Webster and Charlie Bloom return to the RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival this summer, with the show garden ‘Sunburst’ 

The Sunburst Garden by garden designers Charlie Bloom and Simon Webster for Hampton Court Flower Show 2022

A garden designed to showcase a celebration of teamwork, individual skill and craftsmanship, plants and colour. The garden represents an opportunity for those who simply love colour, fun and theatre.

“We hope to bring a garden to Hampton Court that shows people what can be achieved firstly through teamwork, and secondly through colourful planting contrasted with hard materials - a simple combination with no real alterior motive or message. Quite simply, a beautiful and colourful space.”

Steel boundaries act as a complementary backdrop to vibrant and colourful planting, and corten 'moon gates' draw the focal point over a central mirror pool towards the surrounding plants and decorative sunburst at the rear of the garden.

Bursts of colour run throughout the planting areas, flowing from electric blues to fiery reds, oranges and yellows.
