A patchwork way of showing plants
8:00am Saturday 17th August 2013 in News
A WILD plant conservation charity based in Salisbury has been “highly commended” at Hampton Court Flower Show.
Plantlife, in Rollestone Street, showcased its Patchwork Meadow project at the Royal Horticultural Society show.
The charity began the project last year, enlisting the help of the public to create a tapestry of Britain’s wild plants and flowers.
Alison Craig from the charity said: “The Patchwork Meadow was the star of the show.
“People were amazed by it – the imagination, the variety and the love of wild plants poured into these squares.
“One person said it was the best thing they’d seen in the whole of Hampton Court.
“We really hope that our efforts to get it out to more shows so more people can see it, will be supported.”
The pieces will be sewn together to create a giant patchwork meadow celebrating floral heritage and it will start on a series of exhibitions around the UK.
