Gardening Facebook groups blossoming across the UK and social media

As we head towards longer days and better weather, we see the return of the annual gardening shows such as Chelsea, Harlow, Hampton Court and more.

In fact, for one of the first of the year, award-winning designer and landscape architect Joe Perkins has created The Meta Garden: Growing the Future on Main Avenue for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

It will feature a complex pavilion structure that represents the mycelium networks that connect and support woodland life and a central seating area sunken within the environment rather than imposed above it.  The immersive garden is a celebration of the people, organisations and communities coming together on Facebook and Instagram, to enjoy, create and maintain woodlands, forests and green spaces for all of us to enjoy.
