Warner's Distillery Show Garden at RHS Chelsea Flower Show
With the build of our stunning Show Garden well under way and only a few days left until the big reveal, our incredible team are busy making the finishing touches to our epic garden.
Our garden designer, Helen Elks-Smith, has designed the garden in four separate sections that blend together as you make your way round it. She has chosen plants that provide perfect habitats and food sources for pollinators. Helen has chosen many unique plants due to the fact they are native to our local area (in Northamptonshire). We have decided to feature a huge variety of the different botanicals that we distil with to create our glorious multi-award winning gins. Some of which include; blackthorn which produces the sloes that are used in our award winning Sloe Gin and a Juniper bush, because without juniper – we can’t make gin!
Our garden is going to include a beautifully vibrant living roof which will crown the central pavilion, some of the plants that will be used on the living roof will include; Sedums, Euphorbia and Thyme. A wildflower meadow will include a mix of Harebells, Achillia and Cowslips will be used in the garden, embedded in a wildflower turf to create the effect of a grazed meadow grassland.
As you can see from the images, our garden will be full of lots of colour from all of the stunning plants that will be included. Just like the perfect symmetry of these Sempervivum Houseleeks, our garden will have repeated ratios giving it a lovely balanced composition and a wonderful sense of calm.
Along with our Show garden team, we have another glorious team of gardeners planting over 1,500 plants in and around our epic Gin Barn. If you're at the show next week, make sure you pop by to say hi to the team, take in the Falls Farm atmosphere and relax with a G&T or cocktail!
