Size garden: 9m L x 6m W
This is a first Chelsea garden for Breakthrough Breast
Cancer. Inspiration comes from the genetic research
and breakthroughs into breast cancer funded by the
charity. The design is based on a double (DNA) helix
shape: a stone pathway crossed by a ribbon of soft
pink planting. Water pools in the garden ripple every
10 minutes to represent a woman just diagnosed with
breast cancer. White stemmed trees and a green / white
planting scheme create an ethereal feel. The sculpture
(by Rick Kirby) symbolises the courage, dignity and
humanity of all those fighting breast cancer.
The garden exhibited in the Fresh Garden category at
Chelsea Flower Show 19-23 May 2015.
It received a Silver Gilt medal and won Best in category Fresh Garden 2015 (Peoples Choice)
