southport Lovania’s first-time show garden ‘Outdoor Inspiration’ took a trolleyload of trophies home from the Southport Flower Show 2016.  Held at Victoria Park, Southport from 18-21 August 2016, the Southport Flower Show is a key event in the horticultural calendar.

The design was awarded Gold plus the event’s esteemed Finchett and Brian Aughton Trophies for “Best Use of Plants in a Display”.  All this plus an Award of Excellence, too.

The 3-level garden was designed with the family at its core, much like the Lovania Nurseries business itself.  The garden’s key features were:

  • Children’s entertaining, bug hotels, sandpits, grow your own and miniature fairy gardens
  • Adults rooftop garden made out of recycled pallets
  • Three different levels sunken garden, snug room and roof top
  • Flower tunnel
  • Alfresco family dining
  • Two Green living walls
  • Portable modular building blocks based on a logo theme

A hearty thanks to Rick McKeever who designed the garden and to the whole Lovania team who got involved in its creation.
