After a year of planning, design and a successful application to the Royal Horticultural Society, Plankbridge sponsored the Plankbridge Shepherd’s hut garden at The Chelsea Flower Show 2012. Richard and Jane worked with garden designers Woolcott and Smith, of Bishops Stortford who designed a garden based around a scaled down, writers retreat version of the shepherd’s hut. It had lots of Dorset features including a chalk stream, brick and flint wall and a very naturalistic planting scheme.

 

Woolcott and Smith worked with their regular Chelsea collaborators Conway Landscapes to build the garden in only nine days. It was a great experience, and Plankbridge were thrilled to be awarded a silver medal for the garden, which was in the Artisan section. ‘Girl With A Pearl Earring’ author Tracy Chevalier very kindly agreed to be their writer in residence on press day. Plankbridge featured on television, in newspapers, magazines and even on the Radio 4 Today programme.

 

Since 2012 Plankbridge exhibit at Chelsea, on Plateau Way.
