RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2018

Historic Royal Palaces have confirmed that they will be producing a World War 1 commemorative feature “And a forest grew …..” as part of the Guild’s “Battlefild to Butterflies” project at this year’s flower show. The project group, led by Mike Fitt, is formed of several leading organisations and companies who have pledged to help commemorate those gardeners and groundsmen who gave their lives during World war 1.

The feature is to be designed by Todd Langstaffe-Gowan, one of Britain’s leading landscape architects, who previously designed the garden renovations at Kensington Palace. The design will be a passage through time along a devastated trench to vegetative regeneration and finally to a rounded land form of a wildflower meadow.

A mock-up of the design, situated at Stud Nursery, Home Park, was shown to the group in January 2018.
