Mary Jane Vaughan took part in the Floral Gallery competition at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show this year. And this is her beautiful installation, which won a Silver Medal. It’s called ‘The Tranquillity of the Woodland’.
It was designed to highlight the beauty and fragility of our woodland. And it was made from natural materials including a patchwork of cork bark to make the trunk and branches. It also featured rambling roses, clematis, solomon’s seal and angelica from Mary Jane’s garden for the canopy. A tapestry of ferns, grasses, flowering plants and cut flowers were beautifully arranged on the woodland floor.
By the way, Mary Jane and her team have also decorated retailer Tiffany & Co’s shop for Chelsea in Bloom. If you like to see it and over 35 other gorgeous floral installations, head over to my YouTube channel for my ‘Chelsea in Bloom’ video.

P.S. Here’s an interview with Mary Jane, which I published 10 years ago on Flowerona!
