St Mungo's Putting Down Roots Garden
Meet our newest garden, all the way from the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The award winning St Mungo's Putting Down Roots garden has been recycled and is in the process of being permanently homed at London Bridge City. The garden was designed by Cityscapes for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2022 to showcase homelessness charity St Mungo's, and the work done by their horticultural therapy programme 'Putting Down Roots'. The garden was awarded a silver medal at this year's show. The 'urban pocket park' highlights how people can be brought together in a city environment, and embodies the partnership between the two organisations as they work together to help people recovering from homelessness develop their confidence, learn new skills and rebuild their lives. Created to highlight sustainability and recycling, the garden uses materials from previous show gardens. The planting features a mix of native and introduced plants, arranging in a matrix and layered according to the ecological principles of natural plant communities. The design focuses on green textural foliage punctuated with floral accents of colour, giving the garden a gentle sense of tranquillity. The garden is currently be installed, so look out for sneak peeks on our social media.
River Wall Buxus
The dark green of the Buxus and Ivy along the Queens Walk Riverwall provide a contrast to the polished granite in which it is situated. With the back drop of The City, these hedges provide a pleasant change to the stone and cast iron surrounding it.
More London Riverside
This bed includes Hydrangeas, Salvias and Roses to bring a splash of warmth to the cool glass and metal environment. The More London Riverside landscaping will be having a facelift in the future and this bed is just the start.
L Shaped Bed
This bed has had an uplift since last year. Additional plants such as Lavender and Lambs Ear have been added to give fragrance, colour and texture.
