I have a Dream Garden at Hampton Court Flower Show

'August 1963, I have a dream' is a garden designed by Stephen Anthony Ryan for the next RHS Hampton Court Flower Show 2013


The garden remembers 50 years since Martin Luther King gave his famous and groundbreaking speech at the Lincoln memorial in Washington DC. The speech talks about the injustice of racial segregation and prejudice and how he dreams of a time where children of all different colours will play together and how a man "will not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character'


 The garden has separated black and white planting and an area of mixed colour planting, a black and a white water feature that flow and meet in the centre and also the scene is inspired by the shape of the Lincoln memorial. The garden celebrates the progress of the multi racial society and reminds us that segregation and prejudice still need to be resisted.

And the final result - Silver Gilt
