We are so delighted for Ruth Willmott
Morris & Co built by Garden Builders and sponsored by Morris & Co reimagines two of Morris’s iconic patterns won a Gold medal.
Morris’s first pattern Trellis (1862) inspires the garden layout and pathways and one of his most famous patterns Willow Boughs (1887) is reflected in the design of the pavilion and water channels. The pavilion incorporates patterned posts and intricate metal screens and the garden brings his continuing legacy to a contemporary audience. A selection of plants from Morris’s designs are included alongside cultivars of cottage garden favourites. The planting reflects his love of colour – earthy reds, apricots and blues predominate – while providing food and habitat for birds. (photos and extract from RHS website)
