Being an admirer of the famous Chelsea Flower Show and being lucky working for it in the past it is always a great inspiration to garden like the British do!
It is no wonder why we are all so fond of English gardens. With bright blossoms and lush topiary displays everywhere you look, it’s hard not to fall in love with England’s many gardens.
What is an English garden, anyway?
Here’s what you should know: The term isn’t easily defined, but it generally refers to a romantic, sweeping landscape design in which the land overflows with plants and lush flowers in an organic-looking sort of way. First developed in 18th-century England, it is thought that the English garden was initially intended to go against the “architectural gardens” of the time, which were far more rigid in structure, pattern, and shaping.
The trick to recreating the style at home: Combine tradition and elegance with a sense of whimsy. Opt for meandering paths, meadow-like florals, twisting ivy, friendly iron gates, and other fairytale-inspired features you’d expect to see in the old-fashioned garden of your dreams.
