In The Telegraph Garden, Andy Sturgeon has teamed plants together that originate from a variety of different arid environments. This garden is not a recreation of an existing landscape - these plants are not found growing together in nature. This is a creation of a new landscape, that exists only in this garden, featuring plants that require similar growing conditions, that inspired Andy when he discovered them on his travels.
