Re-creating the past at Chelsea.


With just a few weeks to go until the Chelsea Flower Show, Leeds Parks and Countryside Service staff have built a mock up of the city's World War One-themed entry at the City Council's Redhall Nursery this week.

Hardier plants, including box hedging, silver birch and yew and hard landscaping elements, such as the specially constructed summer house and benches, were assembled so that the team could see how their paper designs converted to a three-dimensional reality.

Stuart Gendall, corporate communications director of The Royal British Legion, one of the garden's sponsors, said, "This imaginative garden is a great way to bring the past into the present enabling people of all ages--especially school children--to gain an insight into the stories behind Remembrance and the poignant message of the Poppy."
