A unique feat at RHS Hampton court palace flower show
At this year’s RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower show the ‘Unique’ Rare Chromosome Disorder garden featuring Stonemarket’s new Vitrified Gravity Basalt paving and Cotswolds chippings was awarded a Silver medal.
The garden, designed by London College of Garden Design graduate Catherine Chenery and RHS qualified horticulturist Barbara Harfleet, was inspired by the positive work of the charity, Unique, in alleviating the isolation of families affected by rare chromosome disorders. The design concept centred round a DNA strand, a stylised version of which is also the charity’s logo, which was represented by a winding path, cut across by paving and hedging indicating the duplications and deletions of genes which cause rare chromosome disorders.
The Stonemarket gravel pathway donated to the garden embodied the rough journeys some children and their families have to take.
