A Garden for Rowany Festival
Below is a rough concept plan.
Please note this is a concept plan, it is intended to give you an idea of the type of garden we could create and the type of plants which could be included. It is certainly not a final plan or plant list! In addition to the plants mentioned potted colour consisting of calendulas, dianthus or any other documentable species may also be included. Roses would ideally be of a period species and variety, however given the desire to have flowering roses in the display roses will probably be bought the week before festival and will be selected on the basis of having sufficient flowers and buds to be in flower throughout festival. Roses such as Iceberg while not period look similar, have a long enough flower ing time and are readily available.
I've added a few pictures, I'll reference these and other pictures later.
