2017 Chelsea garden
For this garden, Chris has worked with musicians from the National Youth Orchestra to create music that conveys the narrative and atmosphere of the garden. The music (which will be played on site at certain times) has three movements and the garden has three parts: a leafy woodland area, where acers and unclipped yew and box form a light canopy for naturalistic planting, through an open oak pavilion to a sunny expanse of vibrant South African and aromatic Mediterranean plants.
