Jo Thompson's shedworkingesque Chelsea 2012 show garden

We exclusively revealed garden designer Jo Thompson's shedlike garden design for Chelsea 2012 on Shedworking last month for her ‘A Celebration of Caravanning’ sponsored by The Caravan Club and we're delighted to bring you more details.

Jo's ‘Staycation’ garden will feature pink and cream planting, Wealden sandstone paths, timber walkways crossed by steel rills running with cooling water for feet and bottles. “The idea for the garden came about after seeing the fantastic collection of retro style trailers on the Isle of Wight whilst on holiday last year and seeing people relish in the nostalgia of such a holiday, then thinking about what sort of garden would sit well with these iconic caravans,” said Jo.

Lawrence Bate, Director of Marketing for The Caravan Club added: "Jo’s garden doesn’t only offer a glimpse of the peaceful, idyllic ideals of a caravanning holiday in the UK, it also provides a pure example of how a caravan can be part of your garden design and fit into your daily life. A caravan is not only the perfect home from home when touring but it is also usable in other ways too, extra accommodation for guests, a home office, a relaxing summer house or a play house for the kids, whether old or new this demonstrates the charming space a caravan offers. The Club hopes that this garden will get people looking at caravans in a different light.”
