Chelsea Flower Show 2016: The Harrods Eccentric British Garden

Continuing our look at this year's shedworkingish elements at the 2016 Chelsea Flower Show, The Harrods Eccentric British Garden is designed by Diarmuid Gavin, no stranger to shedworking designs who readers will remember from his 2007 design. It's more traditional than many of his previous wellknown designs though is still an "alternative take on a quintessentially English garden, in which he embraces flowering herbaceous perennials, formal topiary and regimented structure". In particular, look out for the octagonal folly tower which is inspired by English cartoonist and illustrator William Heath Robinson, and which promises surprises for visitors. There is also a shed that will contain Heath Robinson-inspired gadgets. --------------------------------------------------------
