This year’s apprentice display has been a collaboration of ideas from the Parks & Gardens Apprentices.
“The concept of this display began with a simple idea of turning a real bed into a garden bed. From here we started looking at ways all different kinds of furniture could be up-cycled as garden beds rather than just being sent to landfill.
We chose to grow our own plants for this display, including the Dichondra Silver Falls, Zinnias, Petunias, Dahlias and Coleus just to name a few. We sourced our furniture from second hand stores and rescued pieces from the transfer station.
We hope that as you walk through our display you enjoy the quirkiness of some of its features and maybe even find inspiration in up-cycling some of your own things.”
