Furzey Gardens

I’ve been catching up on this year’s Chelsea Flower Show and have been particularly taken by the story behind gold medal-winning garden Furzey Gardens, which was created by a team of young adults with learning disabilities.

With a budget of £60,000, raised through fundraising, they created this gorgeous woodland design, rich with rhododendrons, azaleas and primulas.

See in photos how the garden was built from start to finish!

  1. Love this! I just started on Pinterest (talk about a time suckage) and for some reason I’m drawn to garden photos…this looks beautiful- like a hobbit would live there!
