Start of Maggie's Forest Garden Build at RHS Flower Show Tatton Park 2014
Published: 7th July 2014
After six months of planning we are now at Tatton and building our first show garden. The heat and intensity of the build are keeping us on our toes but hopefully it will all be worth it. The large show gardens are first to start and there is a certain calm before the storm before all the others arrive at the end of the first week of building.
Firstly we had to assess the site to see how our design would fit into the allocated plot and immediate decisions had to be made on any level changes and orientation of the garden. Once this was finalised the build began and in our case, lots of soil was needed to raise the height of the garden. We could then bring in the other materials for the build and the bonus of building a garden at Tatton is there is plenty of space to put these.
