A tumbling-down turret overlooking a green corner of the Wyevale ‘Romance in the Ruins’ garden, designed by Claudia de Yong
Garden designer Claudia de Yong has won a gold medal and Best in Show for her ‘Romance in the Ruins’ garden featuring Hillier trees, designed for Wyevale at BBC Gardeners’ World 2017.
The design, inspired by the medieval Beeston Castle in Cheshire, featured ivy-wrapped crumbling turrets with water cascading into a pond, roses rambling up the side of pergolas, wildflower turf and many other elements creating a dreamy sense of ancient disrepair.
We were absolutely delighted to be able to support with the supply of trees and hedging for the garden, including Malus Rudolf, Acer campestre, Sorbus aucuparia m-stem and Carpinus hedging. Hillier Wholesale Nurseries also supplied ferns and other herbaceous materials.
Enormous congratulations to Claudia and the Wyevale team for their hard work and fantastically well-deserved result.
