    Very weird – and just slightly wonderful in a non pc way

    Initially I thought this was one of the Conceptual Gardens that had slipped its moorings and ended up amongst the Show Gardens, but I couldn’t find it anywhere in the show catalogue so I’m still none the wiser.  It consists of  teletubby-like undulating grass mounds with a  group of  ‘cigarettes’ emerging from the centre. With the backdrop of the very linear artificial grass ‘hedge’ and the Cedar of Lebanon it was visually striking, if a bit perplexing.

    Does anyone know the name of this garden ?
