Beaulieu is in the heart of the New Forest National Park in a stunning location overlooking the beautiful Beaulieu River.

It’s an area I know extremely well, being not too far from home and I’m really excited to be asked to exhibit.

The Unusual Plant Fair

The Fair on Sunday 1st September is a great event with stalls set up around the gardens. It’s a chance to by that unusual plant from one of the stalls or one of your favourites from the garden, available from the garden shop. As well as plant stalls, there are a number of artists stalls displaying work to compliment the planting in your garden. The Fair opens at 11am and is well worth a trip.

Garden Sculptures at Sussex Prairie Garden

.

Last year I had the pleasure of exhibiting at Prairie Gardens so I’m  thrilled to have been invited back for 2017. It was my favorite location last year, making several visits it was great to see the gardens change with the seasons and to sample the fabulous cakes. The gardens are stunning, well worth a visit.
.
I will be installing my Cow Parsley, Sandpipers and Sheep sculptures with the swathes of swaying grasses forming the perfect backdrop for our sculptures. Can’t wait to see them on a summers afternoon with the warm hues of the rusted finish glowing in the sun and perhaps a glass of wine or two.
.
Sculpture is an integral part of the gardens and has been sympathetically installed to further enhance the naturalistic planting.The gardens near Henfield, West Sussex were created by Pauline and Paul McBride. Surrounded by mature oaks, the six acre garden has a series of arched borders with impressive drifts of plants in soft muted colors which contrasts leaf forms, stems, stalks, flower shapes and textures. The borders encourage exploration and adventure and visitors are welcome to roam along tiny paths in amongst the mighty plants and sculptures to further enjoy the experience.
