Chelsea Flower Show And The Pyramid Garden

May 23rd, 2012 · 1 Comment · Gardening News

The Chelsea Flower Show, the premier UK horticultural event, is here again. All week crowds throng the the Chelsea Hospital grounds admiring the show gardens and the floral exhibits. Medals have been awarded and my local garden center, Hilliers, has received its 67th gold – a quite remarkable achievement.

Each year the exhibitors have to come up with new ideas to try to attract the judges’ attention. One of the garden designers who produces somewhat outlandish ideas is Diarmuid Gavin. Last year his suspended Irish Sky Garden which was raised 25 metres off the ground caused quite a stir as I described in this post.

This year he has risen to even greater heights with his 80 foot tall pyramid garden. Constructed from scaffolding poles this giant structure uses its many levels to demonstrate how even the smallest space can be used for planting. Here is a link to a picture of Diarmuid Gavin in front of his pyramid where you can read more about this amazing structure.
