Trailfinders Australian Garden

RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2012 Trailfinders Australian Garden presented by Fleming’s Nurseries, designed by Jason Hodges

Trailfinders, Australia’s leading growers, Fleming’s, and designer Jason Hodges are teaming up to create a garden which pays homage to Jason’s home town of Sydney.

Jason’s garden will be a true suburban Sydney-style garden where an unusual mix of native and sub-tropical plants will co-exist harmoniously with introduced trees and shrubs from Europe and beyond.

Through the use of carefully selected materials it will reference iconic structures such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, while corrugated iron will bring a sense of the rustic, reflecting its use in housing, fences and shedding from the suburban cities of Australia to the great Outback.

Foliage and texture are the key features of the plants selected for this garden. The overall look will be lush with an almost tropical feel. The dominant plants will be mature palms that create vertical lines as well as providing an upper canopy umbrella effect.
