Trussley Road landscape designers strike silver


Hammersmith’s Shoots & Leaves in Trussley Road has struck silver at RHS Hampton Court show with their summer garden called Butterfly Jungles Transitions.

Designed by Paul Allen, Lucy Hughesdon and Lydia Harvey, the garden ‘depicts a journey through butterfly-friendly planting styles, with a gradual transition from wildflowers to prairie-style and exotic planting, concluding with a tropical butterfly glasshouse featuring beautiful butterflies in a jungle-style habitat’.

And according to the friendly folks at Shoots & Leaves, the purpose of the garden is to ‘highlight the decline of butterflies worldwide, and to educate and encourage visitors to do their bit for butterfly conservation in the UK’.

The designers also released the more common UK butterfly species into their garden during the show. Congratulations from all at Horton and Garton!
