This is the garden of Tim Andews - a world renowned ceramicist and potter, who just happens to live right in the centre of Woodbury. The garden is a combined effort between myself and Tim. For the past 2 summers, Tim has held his 'Solo / Solar' exhibition of garden sculpture in his garden, running alongside a solo cermaic exhibition in his studio. The exhibition features numerous renowned artists.
The first exhibition back in 2013 was a great success. This year's show also went down well and both the garden and the exhibits have been well received. In 2015, the garden will be open as part of the NGS Open Garden Scheme, as well as the Solo / Solar exhibition.
The garden is the culmination of around 3 years hard work. Tim originally asked for assistance and input in designing and building a series of railway sleeper edged ponds, as well as general planting and maintenance. The result is a team effort, and this year the planting is really starting to fill out nicely.
All the photos shown here were taken at the beginning of the show, back at the start of June. Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I have enjoyed helping put the garden together!
The third Solo / Solar exhibition will be held late May / early June 2015. See you there!
