RHS CHELSEA FLOWER SHOW 2019

award-winning garden design

Colm Joseph’s award-winning garden at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2019, The Perennial Lifeline Garden, features a classical rose garden reimagined through modern planting design as a more sustainable and low maintenance ‘rose meadow’.

Within the rose meadow, freestanding metal screens, stone and topiary columns, and a pair of modern ‘fountains’ combine to create a modern colonnade. Multi-stem trees add their sculptural form, framing views through the space.

The garden combines crisp modernist design alongside loose, naturalistic planting.
