In partnership with Historic Royal Palaces, we've just scooped a Gold Medal for our amazing show garden at the prestigious Malvern Spring Festival. Designed by Todd Longstaffe-Gowan and entitled 'Gardening Amidst Ruins', the prize-winning garden – a homage to Capability Brown – was praised for its original, imaginative design.
Take a look at our videos to find out how our Gold Medal Garden can inspire creative ideas you can easily apply to your own space.
