Thrift Landscapes are delighted to announce the rehoming of The Urban Pollinator Garden from RHS Hampton Court Flower Show to Cransley Hospice, Kettering. The garden was officially opened in August 2019 and we hope it will bring peace and enjoyment to all those who use it.
Please find below the listed plants used within the garden and pond for the Urban Pollinator Garden at RHS Hampton Court in July 2019.
Thrift Landscapes are pleased to announce that they will be exhibiting The Urban Pollinator Garden at RHS Hampton Court in July 2019, sponsored by Warner’s Gin and built by Conway Landscapes.
The garden will be a magnet for bees and other insects, whilst providing a place for people to relax and connect with nature, without the pressure of keeping bees themselves. Contemporary honeycomb shapes will feature in the sculptural habitat wall running the length of the garden, packed with twigs and branches, and hexagonal paving will boast bee-printed tiles to identify entrances to underground bumblebee nests. Bee bricks from Green & Blue will also feature in the wall providing homes for solitary bees.
The garden will be rehomed at Cransley Hospice in Kettering, Northamptonshire, for the benefit of the patients, visitors and hospice staff.

Resilience Garden by Caitlin McLaughlin supporting Child Bereavement UK
The garden is a metaphor for everyday life, and the resilience of the human spirit in overcoming life’s problems, in particular in dealing with bereavement. Everyday positive and negative experiences are represented by architectural metal runners that populate the space, rising to become insurmountable objects and plunging to be easily overcome.
The garden’s naturalistic planting is a balm to stress and emotional turmoil. A mixture of ferns, grasses and flowering perennials provide a peaceful planting scheme. Dripping water pipes and compact rills are subtly placed to run through the planting and seating areas without dominating the space.
The Resilience Garden will raise awareness of the vital work undertaken by Child Bereavement UK, the national charity which supports families and educates professionals when a child dies, or when a child is facing bereavement.
