RHS Garden Rosemoor through the eyes of a designer

Having spent time interviewing Sophie Dixon, (the award winning garden designer who is head honcho at Sophie Dixon Associates) I'm seeing RHS Garden Rosemoor in a new light. I've loved the garden for years, but it's a joy to walk around with someone who sees it from a different perspective. When Sophie was studying she used Rosemoor as her inspiration; she talked to me about the planting combinations, seasonal interest and how she sees Rosemoor as a technical victory for form, height, shape and borrowed landscape. Sophie says she wishes more of us would have our gardens designed professionally, in the same way we get designers in for a new kitchen... I say that's a great marketing goal and Rowan Tree will be glad to help get the message across!
