Chelsea 2011: The Power of Nature

The Power of Nature garden, sponsored by Worcester-Bosch, was supposed show how nature provides renewable energy for heating, with materials chosen to represent the elements: earth, air, fire and water. It even included strips of photovoltaic cells in the walls to power a waterfall.

It was designed by Olivia Kirk and won a Gold medal.

The seating looks as if it is floating above the paving.

Like many of the gardens, it included a lot of foxgloves - much loved by bees.
