• My aim in de­sign­ing the gar­den was to re­flect the swoop­ing de­sign of the new ex­ten­sion and to de­sign plant­ing schemes that would be in­ter­est­ing year round

• In the front, a sim­ple wave of tiered box, with Pen­nise­tum alopecuroides Fairy Tails threaded through it, flows to­wards the en­trance of the restau­rant and is in stark con­trast with the Cor­nus con­tro­versa Var­ie­gata and the bil­low­ing bor­ders in the back

• Planted nearby is the ev­er­green Trach­e­losper­mum jas­mi­noides, which fills the air with its scent and rises as a hedge be­hind a large border planted with herba­ceous plants and bil­low­ing grasses

• The wood­land gar­den be­yond is planted in a sea of Ses­le­ria au­tum­nalis and Gera­nium Brook­side. Herbs are planted for the chefs to use in the restau­rant
