The Intercontinental Hotel’s display is shown below, incorporating a floral topped teacup and some very pretty nosegays. The company logo is at the bottom, made entirely of yellow and white roses.

Designed for a young couple who want to use their garden year round (although I think they would struggle in snowy weather!), it features comfy sofas, chairs, a fantastic storage wall, a waterfall and even a fireplace. We were particularly taken by the storage wall which has sections to store everything from wine to throws. It’s a very modern garden with lots of concrete and steel, but this is offset by the planting - all white and green with subtle blue highlights. It even has a permeable floor and rainwater harvesting facilities to reduce its environmental impact. I was really taken with it, and my husband and I were not the only ones who were impressed - the RHS awarded this garden a Silver-Gilt medal.
