Near Future Garden Gold inspires gardening in changing world designs for 2017
NFG was awarded a Gold Medal in the Conceptual Category at the 2016 RHS Hampton Court Flower Show.
The lasting legacy of the garden was it’s unique ability to raise interest in climate change issues using plants and innovative garden design.
The interest from over 10,0000 visitors and the extensive TV coverage has prompted the RHS to offer a completely new garden design category for the 2017 Hampton Court Flower Show.
“Gardens for a Changing World” puts designers on the front-line of important issues such as climate events and the planting war against urbanisation. It urges them to place nature and the environment at the centre of modern city lifestyles and deliver inspirational designs to engage visitors with important issues about the future.
