Society of Garden Designers (Garden Design Journal) - Welwyn announced July 2018 Edition

Society of Garden Designers magazine announce Welwyn competition winner

WELWYN GARDEN CITY Centenary Foundation and the SGD have announced Pre-Registered Member Heather Appleton of Appleton & Co as the winner of a joint competition to create a special project for the town's 100th anniversary.

Launched in January 2017, the competition required entrants to design a Centenary Garden, which will de but at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2020 and then be relocated to Welwyn.

Appleton (below right) was chosen from a shortlist of four design teams, selected from 83 competition entries, including Mazzullo + Russell Landscape Design, Richard Riddell Garden & Landscape Design and Williams & Towner Studio. She is a multi-award-winning designer with three RHS Gold Medals and two Best in Show accolades. She made her Chelsea debut in 2011 in the Small Gardens category, and The Welwyn Garden City Centenary Garden will be her first Show Garden at RHS Chelsea.

“The Centenary of Welwyn Garden City and the story of Sir Ebenezer Howard and his indefatigable passion for garden cities struck
a chord with us,” she said, “although research turned many of our preconceived ideas on their head. There are also a few surprises that
we hope we’ve managed to encapsulate.
