‘Bridge Over Troubled Water, was a Show Garden at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show sponsored by Astellas, a pharmaceutical company that provides treatment for bladder problems.  The design tried to evoke the sense of relief that patients feel when they have receive treatment.  Beyond its specific theme, it was hoped that the design resonated with all visitors in some way. We nearly all experience harder times and this garden hopefully reminded you how gardening and having a closer relationship with plants, can be a tonic to some and as much as a lifeline to others.
