The Chelsea Flower Show is held every year in the grounds of Royal Hospital Chelsea in London. I was lucky enough to visit in 2019 and it was an incredible day. The sun shone and the exhibits were simply out of this world.

This piece of work was inspired by The M&G Garden designed by Andy Sturgeon (which won best in show that year) and it examines the ability of plants to adapt and colonise, something known as ‘ecological succession’ – something forever seen in my garden at home! Nature has a mind of its own and a great power to regenerate landscapes. The vibrant, lush formation of wild planting inspired this fresh, green piece – a snapshot of nature at busy at work.
