There are too many things in that garden that shouldn't be there as far as I am concerned and by that I mean the ornaments and antiquities. OK it has a theme but not every one with green fingers can build what is in there can they?

I would tend to agree with tagwex...it look a bit "busy" for my liking. There is a bit too much in a small space. If it was a bigger garden it might look better...to me anyway but i suppose in show gardens like this you are limited by space.

Having said that it is nice and have/will have similar designs in my own garđen

I like the colours, however the collection of items is a bit like a "theme pub". I should know as I have been known to collect and cobble items together myself.

Great pics by the way KS.

Some nice planting, but have to agree - it's too busy and looks more like a salvage yard than a garden
