Whitchurch-based Multi-award winning designer Sarah Eberle will be creating a floating river garden for the RHS Chelsea Flower show in May.
Inspired by the floating gardens in the silk weaving region of Cambodia and the Mekong
River, this garden will be largely made up of water with a small deck leading to a ‘floating’ lounger styled on a traditional fishing boat.
Overhead a cantilevered parasol inspired by traditional fishing nets and silk weaving provides shade. The floating beds contain a mixture of food stuffs and flowers for cutting within a water side matrix. The floating plant used here is watercress.
Eberle travelled to Cambodia and the Mekong River to research and prepare the garden.
