A show garden adventure in Istanbul

Posted on 19th May 2016

It’s a week since I got back from Istanbul having built a show garden for the first ever Bestiktas garden festival and I have only just got around to downloading some images of my garden ‘Seeking refuge’.

.

I had no idea what an adventure this would turn out to be!  A full on endurance challenge building the garden with a team of local Turkish people and Afghan refugees. This couldn’t have been more apt given the subject of the garden which focussed on the refugee crisis.  To find out more about the story behind the garden click here

A huge thank you to everyone involved in the organisation and build of the show. I had the best time and know this will be one show garden experience I will never forget. .
