BBC One: Chelsea Flower Show 2015 Episode 1
'Of course most gardens at Chelsea are designed by computer but this one, the Pure Land Foundation garden just goes that extra mile because it’s designed using software that’s used in the aerospace industry so really- at the cutting-edge. And in fact, in the manufacture of the garden all of this composite material was cut using computerised cutters with robots, so it really is the latest thing.
But and it’s a big but- it’s all so beautifully rounded and soft and organic. And that softness is very much picked up on in the planting, I love these Golden Rain trees not always seen at Chelsea - three of them on this garden and they create this wonderful sort of dapple shade and that Iris called Kent Pride is irresistible; and the wonderful bronze colouring just picks up in the geums and this variety of grasses.
For me this garden really shows that you can marry high-tech and nature, beautifully.'
