A Splash of Colour24th May 2012 • General • Stephanie Donaldson
The Bradstone Panache Garden was one of the Fresh Gardens that really attracted my eye because the planting was just that – fresh. A lovely bright mixture of plants that was halfway between a pictorial meadow planting and an herbaceous border. It’s designer, Caroline Butler, is being mentored by Chris Beardshaw after being awarded this year’s Mentoring Scholarship. She is a designer to watch. Her garden featured geums in two shades and they popped up in several other gardens too. A plant to watch?
