The M&G Garden plant list 2018

Posted on

Sarah Price’s 2018 garden for M&G celebrates the beauty and simplicity of the Mediterranean’s unique landscape using modest and sustainable raw materials and a vibrant planting palette. The flora and raw materials provide a sense of warmth and richness with textured, rammed earth walls and stacked tiles framing views of twisted wisteria stems, graceful Lagerstroemia trees, scented thyme carpets.

Layered planting of deep pinks, lilacs and yellow flowers are held together by swards of grasses. Gravel scree plantings of Asphodelus, Dianthus and delicate poppies interweave informal pathways surrounded by low tapestries of ground-hugging, scented herbs and the silvery tones of sub shrubs. In the heart of the garden, the rugged form of two mature pomegranate trees, create an intimate place of repose.
