The Telegraph Garden was designed by Andy Sturgeon and built by Crocus. Inspired by the sense of awe and wonderment that he felt visiting The National History Museum, for the first time as a child, Andy Sturgeon has used these memories as his inspiration for his design for The Telegraph Garden, to evoke delight and interest in both children and adults alike. With unusual plants selected for The Telegraph Garden, all of which are all found growing in arid conditions, though not usually together – the plants used originate from 32 different countries, this garden is designed to cope with climate change and increasingly dry conditions. The dramatic bronze fins represent an ancient mountain range, with a stream of melt water below. Andy Sturgeon was inspired by the dramatic geological changes that have taken place during the life time of the earth, and how these events have shaped and changed the landscape. This garden reminds us all that we are only present for a fleeting moment of the life cycle of the earth.
