Perrywood get growing for Hampton Court Garden Festival

Perrywood Garden Centre is supporting Suffolk based designer and author Lucy Hutchings with her edible allotment garden. It’s an exciting design that will be brought to life at the RHS Hampton Court Garden Festival in July.


The plants, including chillies, heirloom tomatoes and edible flowers like nasturtium, are being grown and nurtured in the production nursery at Perrywood Tiptree. After the show, the garden will be carefully moved and rebuilt at Perrywood Sudbury, allowing visitors to the garden centre a unique opportunity to view and enjoy Lucy’s inspiring space.


Lucy is well known as Instagram gardening sensation She Grows Veg. Her new book ‘Get up and Grow’ has just been published and inspires the allotment garden design. Her aim was to display how a small space can supply a surprising amount of edible produce and be a beautiful place to spend time in.


The Plans for Plants illustrations show Lucy’s innovative and unusual means of growing fruit, vegetable and edible flowers. For example, on arches and in glass cupboards! The ‘Get up and Grow’ garden will be in the RHS Community Allotment category, which will celebrate the best of community gardening. It will feature many allotment-style plots full of delicious vegetables, herbs, fruits and flowers.


Perrywood Communication Manager Louise Smith says, “Our theme this year is ‘Get Growing’. We want to help all those new lockdown gardeners to keep planting and enjoying their outdoor spaces. We love showing our customers how to create something a little bit different. Bringing the whole garden back to display at Perrywood Sudbury will allow a greater number of people to get up close and reconsider their own gardens and growing spaces.”
