Converted farm garden

We just added a new garden profile entitled Converted farm courtyard garden for London based garden designer Claudia de Yong. As with all designer garden profiles we give you a full plants list for the garden to review.  One plant that Claudia used in this garden which caught our eye is Rhodochiton atrosanguineum (Purple bell vine). We think it is beautiful and a little unusual climber choice! Do you agree?

This is the 5th garden profile we have added for Claudia on Shoot each one with its own planting list to help you to get the look. To see a full list of her gardens on Shoot visit Claudia’s business listing in Shoot. Claudia also has an article on Shoot about container planting combinations and personal profile. Check them out and enjoy!
