How do you relocate a 420 square metre quarry garden 50 miles down the road to the National Memorial Arboretum?
There’s never a dull day in PR. And supporting The Institute of Quarrying (IQ) during their centenary year has been especially fun!
June marked the first ever RHS Chatsworth Flower Show. And the show garden by IQ won a hat trick of awards! But all will not be forgotten. RHS award winning garden designer Paul Hervey-Brookes will soon re-home the Quarry Garden, providing a legacy to the quarrying industry.
After generating a huge buzz for the RHS Chatsworth show garden, including achieving Telegraph‘s picture of the month, we hope to do the same for the relocation project.
So exciting times are ahead!
The garden will be reimagined to suit the needs of the Arboretum in terms of accessibility. But, it will retain the spirit and message that was so successful at RHS Chatsworth! It will serve as a lasting legacy to all IQ members and will be a reminder in 100 years of what can be achieved if you are brave and resourceful.
And to top off a monumental year for the IQ, we’re also creating a 100 page ‘coffee table’ book to commemorate its centenary. We’re chuffed with the result and so are the IQ! We can’t wait for it to be presented to VIP guests later this month.
