The Garden

This private roof-top terrace garden is an exemplar for planting for biodiversity and shows the wide range of plants which can be grown successfully in a garden throughout the year. This beautifully maintained private space showcases unusual and exotic plants as well as garden favourites. Winner of many City awards, this is a joyful and exuberant garden which reflects the passion of Paul Burnage from Grasshopper Displays, the garden contractor. This garden is his vision and he communicates his love for all things horticultural throughout this stunning urban space. Paul will be introducing the garden and chatting to visitors throughout the Sunday.
