Chelsea Flower Show 2013

For the 2013 Centenary RHS Chelsea flower show, Jinny worked with B&Q and Sentebale: the childrens charity funded by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho.

Lesotho, also known as the Forgotten Kingdom, has a fascinating landscape and culture that confounds one’s expectations of what makes a country ‘African’.  Its climate is akin to that of Wales with which it is twinned, cool and damp, hence the need for wearing thick blankets. This garden was a contemporary evocation of the mountains, round houses and wonderfully unusual blanket designs that are the national costume.  We managed to express not only the beauty and rich culture yet also the inaccessibility and fragility of the country.
