Victorian inspired show garden brings together Yardley London and Perennial at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show
A show garden at this summer’s RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show celebrates women’s influence in gardening since the Victorian era in a collaboration between quintessentially English floral fragrance house Yardley London and long-standing charity for horticulturists Perennial, both of which have roots firmly planted in British floral heritage. Designed by Jean Wardrop and Alexandra Stevenson, A Growing Obsession – the Yardley London Perennial Garden is inspired by the Victorian English Garden, recreating the elegance of a ladies’ flower garden.
