After building the largest ever show garden in 2006, garden designer John Cavill has this year teamed up with Dean Brown from Decol Construction Ltd and Karen Prince from Laburnum plants Ltd to build the smallest ever show garden at BBC Gardeners World Live.

This project evolved in collaboration with Mandy Hounsome then with RPS Design in Bristol who designed…Continue
