Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush

GOLD AWARD, Graham Armstrong, Armstrong Landscapes, designed by Hana Leonard, Secrets of the Garden Ltd

The old nursery rhyme is brought to life in a small garden that combines traditional plants and planting with modern landscaping materials. Two things were a main inspiration – a mulberry tree that despite its long tradition in British garden spaces, beautiful leaves and edible fruit isn’t planted often anymore. And the origins of the old nursery rhyme going back to female prisoners walking around the ‘mulberry bush’ with their children.

Mulberry Tree is a key element and a focal point of the garden that is a place to unwind and to forget about the rest of the world outside.
