In June 2019 I worked at Hampton Court Flower Show on the build team for the RHS Sanctuary Garden, which was designed by Ula Maria and built by Mark Whyman Landscapes. I assisted with planting, hard landscaping and detailing as well as watering, transporting plants and general runner duties. I gained insight into the unique challenges and joys of building a show garden and the process of bringing a design to fruition.
In 2020 I was due to join three different build teams on show gardens at the RHS Flower Shows at Chelsea, Hampton Court and Tatton Park. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 outbreak these plans were unable to go ahead, but I hope to return to show gardens in 2021.
