The Brief

The Baroque Garden theme was chosen by Laurence Senior for whom it was a debut show garden design. He wanted a classic, Italianate garden and asked me for planting that was soft, informal, wild and ethereal with muted colours and soft features. 

I selected Alliums, Daucus carota and Stipa tenuissima to create a feathery look with form and yet an aspect of wilderness.
