Jo and team to create a wildlife garden at this year’s RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival

Inspired by the idea of ‘accidental’ landscapes and imagined as an urban corridor reclaimed by nature, the Wildlife Garden shows how wildlife can naturally thrive in what are often thought of as unexpected, unlikely and forgotten places: the landscapes in-between. These ‘accidental’ landscapes have the potential to create substantial green corridors in our towns and cities.

Speaking about the design, Jo said: “We wanted to re-frame what a wildlife-rich space can be and show that a garden does not need to be limited by a fence line; it can be the verge of the pavement outside or the ‘empty’ space beyond the back gate. All these spaces can be used, and with a little intervention, can become rich habitats which benefit wildlife and people.”
