    Alexandra Froggatt may be self-taught and is still very young, but that didn’t stop her winning the ‘Your Garden, Your Budget’ category where costs are limited to £15,000. She as created a garden that shows a real grasp of design and individual flair. I loved the pale palette and the differing textures from rough hewn timber to milky opaque glass and polished concrete. The planting mixed softly hued perennials and grasses, but I was also struck that the design would allow for very different plantings too. softly heud grasses contrast with concrete soft floaty grasses in the foreground, opaque glass in the background
