Gold award: The Anniversary Garden: A Brief History of Modern Gardens designed by Prof. David Stevens, David Stevens International
Contractor: Howle Hill Nursery
The past fifty years has probably seen a greater change in gardens than ever before. TV, radio and the media have made an enormous influence, publicising new ideas, trends and materials. Gardeners’ World has been integral throughout, reporting and commenting on the day to day development of the horticultural world with an ever-changing band of enthusiastic and knowledgeable presenters that brought their own skills to the programme.
Join Professor David Stevens and Peter Dowle as their unique creation puts the last 50 years of gardens on display in fascinating vignettes for each decade.
From the relative austerity of the 1960's when garden design was still in it's infancy, to the 'room outside' reaching new levels in the 2000's, this series of gardens focuses on all the elements of design and planting that has made each decade unique in the way we have looked at, and developed, our gardens.
