The Sadolin Nature To Nurture Garden - Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2009


I thought this cottage-style planting was superb


The garden features stunningly beautiful wildflowers in an impressive display
Guardian online


Her meadow-style planting in three ornamental beds was truly lovely with jewel-coloured perennials popping out of the swaying ornamental grass
Countrydays online


With temperatures in London reaching 30C last week, the build-up at this year's Hampton Court Show involved feverish snipping of dead heads and twice-daily watering. The challenging conditions have meant many flowers have peaked and gone over and for the same reason Philippa Pearson had to drop verbascums and salvias from her vibrant design for the Sadolin Nature To Nurture Garden but has no problem using later-blooming echinaceas and crocosmias.
The Times


Philippa Pearson's Sadolin Nature To Nurture Garden aims to blur the distinctions between natural habitat and man-made garden by means of a palette of tall plants. This design and a Beekeeper's Garden are the most interesting of the main show gardens section, which acts as a 'nursery' of sorts for promising new designers.
Daily Telegraph


The design was meant to reflect the surrounding countryside but to also be modern and relaxing and an area for entertainment and for having time with the family. Pretty much pushes a whole bank of buttons there. It had a sedum roof too, over a 'garden room' (tick). But, facetiousness aside, it certainly had the most stunning planting of mixed perennials planted in a wild style to reflect the meadow outside the fence.
Water Gardener Magazine online


Sparkling with colour amid gentle waves of grass, Philippa Pearson's sublime planting in the Sadolin Nature to Nurture Garden bridges the divide between meadow and perennial border. Known as 'jewel' planting, this style deliberately avoids blending colours: in Philippa's scheme white Lilium regale is placed next to purple bobbles of Allium sphaerocephalon, orange Helenium 'Sahin's Early Flowerer' and steely blue Eryngium 'Jos Eijking'. The flowers are all borne at similar heights, glinting in the sunlight like a treasure-chest of gems

The Homebase Room With A View - Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2008


It is always difficult to pick a favourite at Hampton Court and this year was no different. I was really taken with the Homebase garden 'Room with a View' (Silver-Gilt) designed by Philippa Pearson. The garden was created using Homebase products, making it possible for garden enthusiasts to easily recreate the look at home which for me is important.
Horticulture Week online


The GardenVisit.com Design Award at Hampton Court 2008 runner up was the Homebase Room with a View, designed by Philippa Pearson. She has made an attractive garden room with the excellent addition of a living roof terrace above.


Views form the focal point of the Homebase 'Room With A View' garden, which incorporates a platform covered in a green roof garden, raised so visitors can appreciate the vistas. Designed by Philippa Pearson, it also offers shade and shelter to a seating area below.

The Sadolin Garden Of Regeneration - Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2007


But one of the prettiest has to be the ancient art of potager gardening, captured by designer Philippa Pearson.
BBC Gardening on-line


And one of my favourites was the Sadolin Garden of Regeneration by Philippa Pearson. It was so popular that I struggled to get a good photograph through the crowds!
Courgettes and Fennel


If you're after some inspiration on how to 'green' your garden, look no further than the impressive Sadolin Garden of Regeneration, which has wowed audiences and judges, winning a prestigious Silver Gilt medal and compliments galore.

Designed by Philippa Pearson and sponsored by Sadolin, this pretty potager garden, which amazingly features over fifty varieties of fruit and veg, steps back to a more wholesome gardening era, where organic growing and a low carbon footprint were the norm. Indeed, the garden is all about breathing new life into old and reinventing elements of the past for today's modern gardeners.

Here's the perfect demonstration of how veg, fruit and flowers can be squeezed into a small garden.
Garden News


Exhibiting for the first time at Hampton Court, Philippa has designed the garden to show how eco-friendly gardens can be as aesthetic as they are ethical.
The Gardening Website


One of the small gardens at the show was devoted entirely to edible plants and this just shows how a tiny area could be productive but also very attractive too.
