2010 Hampton Court Palace Flower Show exhibitors from Greater London For more information and regular updates about exhibitors and the 2010 Hampton Court Palace Flower Show please register on the RHS press portal at: press.rhs.org.uk Tourism Thailand Elevations Exhibition Design & Managed Exhibitor Type: Show Garden Site number: GW/7 Contact name: James Clarke Contact number: 01604 891552 Contact email: james.clarke@elevations.co.uk Press name: Joanna Cooke, Tourism Thailand Press number: 0207 925 7823 Press email: joanna@tourismthailand.co.uk Address: Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), 1st Floor, 17-19 Cockspur Street, London SW1Y 5BL This garden is based upon a section of a river in a rural location in Thailand. It is designed as a showcase for plants from Thailand as well as focusing on a way of life away from the cities. Visitors to the garden will be able to cross the river into a lush garden and pass by an accurate recreation of a Thai Sala. This Thai Sala is located on the opposite side of the river with steps down to the waters edge. This serves as a shelter from the rain and the sun and becomes somewhere to rest and contemplate away from the house. The steps to the water allow the house owner to leave daily offerings to passing Buddhist Monks along the river. The water is a recreation of a river edge in Thailand; it will be circulating and will hold some sediment in the water. Jill M W Foxley A Matter of Urgency! Exhibitor Type: Show Garden Site number: GW/12 Contact name: Jill Foxley Press name: Ryan Muirhead, Red Door Communications Press number: 0208 392 8050 / 07791634347 Press email: rmuirhead@rdcomms com Website: www.the-perfumed-garden.co.uk / www.rdcomms.com Address: Red Door Communications, The Limes, 123 Mortlake High Street, London SW14 8SN The A Matter of Urgency garden has been designed to raise awareness of overactive bladder (OAB), a condition that affects nearly 1 in 5 people in the UK over 40. OAB is a sudden compelling need to relieve the bladder, which is difficult to put off. As an echo of the frustration and urgency of OAB, a long and winding hardwood path, with steps inset with glittering glass tiles, leads slowly to a giant pink tap at the centre that appears magically suspended in mid-air, pouring water into a square central pool with seating on three sides. A straight hardwood path out of the garden symbolises taking action to help alleviate the condition. The paths lead through a variety of soft and spiky textures, where vivid shades of pink are highlighted with muted blues and silvers. Designer Jill Foxley has exhibited in two previous Hampton Court Palace Flower Shows and has won both a Bronze and Gold medal as well as a Peoples Choice award. Sekitei Design Ltd Journey to Enlightenment Exhibitor Type: Conceptual Garden Site number: A/112 Contact name: Makoto Tanaka Contact number: 020 82654329 Mobile number: 07748 345301 Contact email: makoto@sekiteidesign.co.uk Address: 5a Ramsden, London, SW12 8QZ The purpose of this garden is to represent the oriental concept of nature. The theme of the garden is Mechanism of the Mind and it is systematically constructed by the mind and the root of unhappiness earthly desires. By comprehending the Mechanism of the Mind we are able to quell earthly desires - this is the oriental concept of unifying with nature. The pond represents the inner and outer mind; both sides have earthly desires and these are represented by different growths of trees, sprouts and seeds. People can walk through from the outer mind to the inner mind. Louvers are built in the circle inside the pond, these represent the trees of earthly desires. Words describing these desires are fixed upside down on the Louvers and the words can only be read from the reflection on the pond. The garden has five view points to make the viewer comprehend the Mechanism of the Mind and people are guided to unify with nature: The restricted mind world this is represented by the restricted view towards the inner circle by the louvers. No recognition of earthly desires the words of earthly desires can be read in the inner circle. The separation of the mind, earthly and egocentric a 360 degree view from the centre of the inner circle. Unifying with nature the opening view towards the evanescence tree represents the evanescence of life. Steven Wooster Photography Ltd Hearts and Minds Heat Sand Mines Exhibitor Type: Conceptual Garden Site number: A/115 Contact name: Steven Wooster Contact number: 0208 9315358 Mobile number: 07932737365 Contact email: steven.wooster@btinternet.com Address: 41 Colin Gardens, London, NW9 6EL Up to the end of 2009 a total of 179 British soldiers were killed in Iraq and 246 killed in Afghanistan, of those 246 no less than 108 were killed in 2009. With so many troops dying and wounded in the war devised by Bush, Blair, Brown and Barack this garden is a moving and moveable memorial to them. It comprises four L-shaped walls in the formation of a crucifix. These walls consist of a series of gabion cages in-filled with loosely arranged construction blocks and blood red debris-filled bags. Two olive trees are used to symbolise peace as well as being able to cope with the conditions of the hot, dry environment. The memorial is designed for personal interaction and can be entered through both its central and lateral axes. The narrow entrance pathways make progress measured. A central sculptural piece adds a focal point and completes the design. The structure is designed to be erected, or conversely, disassembled in less than a day by a small team of people, either military or civilian. Adelaide Community Garden Club Bangladeshi Allotment Exhibitor Type: Sustainable Garden Site number: B/9 Contact name: Jeff Travers Contact number: 07970 176354 Contact email: jeftravers@gmail.com Website: www.a3landscape.co.uk Address: Flat 1, 62 Gloucester Avenue, London NW1 8JD Adelaide Community Garden Club (ACGC) was created in London over 20 years ago to reduce suicide rates in adjoining tower blocks. 15% of current plot holders originate from Bangladesh and they intensively cultivate unusual vegetables on their plots which are usually visually striking and distinctive. These are grown in raised beds as the Community Garden is sited on an old tarmac car park. The garden is an Adelaide Community Garden Club Bangladeshi allotment in the form of a formal potager. It shows vegetables and horticulture strange to English eyes. An herb parterre, within an outdoor room, is screened by strange beans and giant rambling gourds. The garden ironically juxtaposes sustainable Bangladeshi subsistence horticulture with wasteful unproductive Western formal landscaping. Although the garden will be based on Bangladeshi horticulture, all the Bangladeshi plants grow happily in the United Kingdom at the ACGC garden. The garden is a microcosm of Louis XIVs Potager du Roi the origin of scientific horticulture and is a perfect quadrille. Laugiers iconic Hut (mans first house) is replicated in living willow in one quarter creating a picturesque view. Laugier called for a rethink of degenerate, wasteful design forms. The design adopts Laugiers principles of garden ornament. Particularly he advocates subjecting Versailles outdoor rooms to foreign (eastern) influence. Thus, ironically, the folly of formal landscape style is subjected to Bangladeshi subsistence horticulture where everything is edible and recycled. Laugiers Hut becomes a dougie house. Exotic vegetables grow on a matrix of junk and urban detritus. The garden is entirely prefabricated using 900mm square industrial pallets and waste - costing almost nothing. Design in Latitude Victoria Pustygina and Ludovica Ginanneschi Together Again D-Shape Garden Exhibitor Type: Sustainable Garden Site number: B/6 Contact name: Ludovica Ginanneschi Contact number: 020 74602796 Mobile number: 07964529546 Contact email: ludovica@designinlatitude.co.uk Website: www.designinlatitude.co.uk Address: 82 Elsham Road, London, W14 8HH This contemporary garden is a vision of strength and lightness at the same time, offering ecological and elegant space for entertaining and relaxation. The centrepiece of the garden is a modern gazebo, constructed with absolutely new sustainable technology called D-shape, which allows creating recycled artificial stone indistinguishable from the real stone with the bonus of it being 100% environmentally friendly. High and soft clumps of grasses and neutral coloured perennials surround and complement the structure. The garden celebrates the reunion of millions of grains of rock sand, which after being separated for a long time finally end, gathering together as they used to when they were forming the original natural stone. Last year the designers presented a garden at the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show and were was awarded an RHS Gold Medal and Best Conceptual Garden Award.

The exhibit will include many of the old fashioned roses dating back from as early as the 13th century coming through the ages right up to date to include our two new introductions to be launched at the show. Two roses are due to be launched at the show: Rosa Togmeister (Floribunda) Peter Beales Roses are pleased to introduce this rose for one of Radio and Televisions best loved presenters, Sir Terry Wogan and for his many fans, who dubbed him Togmeister. It is a delightful fragrant, bright yellow rose which flowers continuously all summer. Its foliage is healthy, glossy and plentiful. As a bush it is of tidy growth disposition and easy to manage. Good grown in groups of three. Size: 75cmx75cms. Rosa Francis Copple (Modern Shrub) A lovely semi-double rose of coppery yellow paling to primrose yellow as the flower ages. Very free flowering throughout the summer. Fragrant. Foliage large and glossy. This rose is a true delight, planted in small groups or even used as a short hedge. If the late summer flowers are not deadheaded, it will produce a good crop of oval shaped orange hips. This rose owes its name to Francis Copples daughter, Leslie who left funds in her will when she passed away, to have a rose named for her father. Francis was a Metropolitan Policeman for most of his life and loved roses. We are delighted to have obliged the family with this delightful shrub rose.
