Property developer London Square is sponsoring a garden square by landscape gardener and Gold Medal winner Jo Thompson at the 2014 RHS Chelsea Flower Show
The property developers behind London Square Fulham are the sponsors of a garden square created by landscape gardener Jo Thompson for Chelsea Flower Show 2014.
In the centre of the garden square, which has one a gold medal at the show, is an impressive marble sculpture by Frederic Chevarin – a piece of art with tendrils that turn and twist through the garden. Flowing sweeps of fine steel rise out of the plants to make a structure that becomes a bench.
Jo Thompson has used white standard roses, along with a colour palette of green and white, and hints of pale apricot irises, while splashes of cream will come from the shiny white bark of three majestic silver birches.
Jo, who has also been commissioned by London Square to design the garden of the new show home at London Square Fulham, said: “I grew up in Italy and squares are very much a feature of Italian life, as they are in London – communal and convivial spaces for people to meet, exchange gossip and watch the world go by. I used to live near Eccleston Square in Pimlico, which is known for its roses and is considered to be one of the capital’s most beautiful garden squares. Squares have been part of London life for centuries. They can transport you to another place and yet be metres from a busy road and the beating heart of a city. I have tried to capture this in our Chelsea garden.”
