Back to ‘The Good Life Pavilion’ to enjoy the ‘edible gardens’– show gardens in which a proportion of the plants grown had to be edible. As the catalogue outlined, the GLP is “all about sowing, growing and cooking with fresh wholesome food harvested from the garden. It’s about enjoying and preserving a year-round supply of fruit, vegetables and herbs … and living a sustainable life.” Designers had taken this definition into account, using prepared food and drink as part of their design.
|Clipped bay outpaced the tea plant (Camellia) in this tranquil garden|
|I've only shown a section of this garden - the cooking structure was over-dominant|
|I can recall occasions when my husband and I would picnic in a|
garden as magical as this - I wish there was space to show close-ups of
the plants. Truly a bower in which to relax.
|And so our day ended, and we made our way home, captivated by all|
we had seen, and inspired to continue reclaiming our own acre of ground.
