Homebase Teenage Cancer Trust Garden – Joe Swift

After years of taking a lead role in presenting BBC TV’s coverage of the Chelsea Flower Show, Joe, an established and successful garden designer, finally put his money where his mouth is and presented his first Chelsea Show garden. Joe’s garden bought him the prestigious gold medal.

This garden was been inspired by the power of plants and natural forms in an urban and suburban environment.

Four golden brown, cedar wood frames created vistas through the garden, dividing it into distinct zones.
