Visitors to Leeds Castle in Kent were puzzled today when a floating English cottage garden appeared on the 900 year old moat. In fact, the floating floral spectacle was a beautifully decorated punt in the theme of an English cottage garden – complete with garden table and chairs – as the Castle unveiled its spectacular entry to The Chelsea Fringe. The floral bedecked punt was created by Leeds Castle Florist, Louise Roots, making use of wonderful seasonal flowers found in and around the Castle grounds.
Tomorrow Leeds Castle’s celebration of The Chelsea Fringe will take place in the Culpeper Garden. At 1130am Andrew McCoryn, The Head Gardener, will be giving a specialist talk on the history of the gardens and day to day maintenance with useful tips for visitors to take home. Invicta Grammar School will be coming to sing and recite poetry at 130pm and there will be a special flower trail set up for younger children.
