10 trees for award winning legacy garden

10 Jul 2015

Trees donated by Civic Trees formed part of an award-winning garden created by acclaimed garden designer Paul Hervey-Brookes.

The Perennial Legacy Garden was designed for the RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) Flower Show Tatton Park and featured 10 trees donated and planted by the semi-mature tree specialist.   The handpicked specimens included three Betula pendula, two Castanea sativa multi-stem, one Ginkgo biloba and a Fagus sylvatica ‘Quercifolia’.The garden was staged by the charity for horticulturalists, Perennial, and aimed to highlight the importance of legacy gifts to the charity.

Perennial provides financial assistance, help and advice to working and retired horticulturists throughout the UK.  In 2014 legacy gifts made up more than 34 percent of the charity’s income.    

Paul’s design reflected elements of the great country estates of the UK where Perennial was established over 175 years ago.  It featured long herbaceous borders, a traditional pavilion for relaxing and a separate walled working garden with a gardener’s bothy and nursery beds.  

A team of three from Civic Trees worked alongside Paul to plant the trees in accordance with the design, lending the garden a sense of maturity and height in-keeping with its theme of a well-established garden on a successful country estate.


Deric Newman, general manager of Civic Trees, said: “It was a real pleasure to make our mark on this fantastic show garden and lend it the maturity of a traditional country estate.  It’s our aim to support horticulturists through our long-term association with Perennial and we hope that the Perennial Legacy Garden serves as a reminder that those who care for the green spaces of modern Britain are not always as visible as the gardens, parks, landscapes and sports grounds they meticulously maintain.”

The Perennial Legacy Garden went on to secure Gold and Best in Show.
