Thousands of garden fans have seen a Horsham firm’s work win a silver medal at the Chelsea Flower show.
Living Landscapes, led by director Tecwyn Evans, built The Pro Corda Garden, called A Suffolk Retreat, at the world-famous show and Royal Horticultural Society judges awarded the exhibit a silver medal.
London-born international violist Shiry Rashkovsky, whose parents were top violinists, played in the garden with one of Pro Corda’s students, entertaining passers-by who included husband and wife actors Jim Carter and Imelda Staunton.
The exhibit was described as an uplifting artisan garden with music at its heart. It was designed by Frederic Whyte in partnership with the national music and education charity Pro Corda. The Queen was among the VIP visitors to the show.
Living Landscapes worked with designer Frederic Whyte to build the garden using traditional landscaping skills, weaving together the works of a handpicked selection of Suffolk’s finest artisans.
