About This Project

A proposal for the National Trust to transform the Quebec area at the iconic Studley Royal Water gardens. As this area suffers from flooding, the design employs planting tolerant to water-logging. Scores of Amelanchier lamarckii are arranged in the form of two swans, framing a statue of Leda. They are underplanted with snake’s-head fritillaries and white irises. Formal hedging of Osmanthus x burkwoodii complete the plan. The cover shows the concept in spring, the Amelanchier full of white bloom and wonderful for pollinators. In autumn, the leaves turn copper. Black winter berries provide food for birds.
