RHS Chelsea 2019
Location: Chelsea, London
Inspired by the sculptural beauty of arid landscapes, the Dubai Majlis Garden references windblown sand dunes, fluvially eroded rock, man-made hillside terraces and goat-browsed topiary-esque plants.With a muted palette of oranges and blues, the planting embraces the sculptural beauty found in arid landscapes, such as windblown germander and tapestry-like carpets of thymes that hug rocky landscapes.The water source seemingly connects to an oasis like pond finding its way around obstacles, giving life to the plants and leading to a meeting point.
Key plants included Punica Granatum, Ziziphus Jujuba, Parrotia Persica, Euphorbia Dendroides, Teucrium Fruticans and Myrtus Communis
