At this year’s RHS Hamp­ton Court Flower Show, quiet your thoughts in the tran­quil Ape­iron Gar­den. It was de­signed by Alex Rain­fordRoberts, who was struck by the sense that her mem­o­ries of her grand­fa­ther would live on after he died, which in­spired her to create a meadow that ex­ists and doesn’t all at once. The re­sult is a mir­rored room con­tain­ing an infinite gar­den, which is per­fect for a moment alone.

In other in­stal­la­tions, you’ll find plants that re­duce pol­lu­tion and im­prove air qual­ity, and you can chal­lenge your views on con­sumerism in an in­stal­la­tion set aboard a cat­tle truck. Mean­while, the South West Wa­ter Green Gar­den pro­motes the fact that rain­wa­ter is a pre­cious re­source, and wants to in­spire others to im­ple­ment wa­ter re­cy­cling in their own back yards, and create gar­dens that re­duce flood risk.
