A Musselburgh-based charity is blooming at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show, after its fantasy ‘Elsewhere Garden’, with signature ‘Dolly Mixture’ stream, won a Gold award.

Teapot Trust, which is based at Eskmills Park and provides art therapy to children, young people and their families living with chronic conditions, worked with Scottish-Swiss design studio, Semple Begg, to present the garden at the London attraction.

Sarah Randell, chief executive of Teapot Trust, said: “Winning gold is a fantastic acknowledgement of the brilliance of Semple Begg’s design in conveying the freedom gifted by art therapy.”

The Elsewhere Garden is a fantasy garden representing a child’s imagination. For inspiration, the designers looked to Willy Wonka’s factory, to Oz and Wonderland.

Susan Begg, of Semple Begg, said: “The design process began with a workshop with children benefiting from Teapot Trust art therapy. We were blown away by the imaginary worlds they created in their artworks; the art therapy literally took them ‘elsewhere’.

Scottish composer and sound artist Michael Begg and audio visual artist Kathy Hinde created an experimental soundscape to bring the garden to life including kinetic water sculptures, dancing grass and live weather feeds.

Following Chelsea, the garden will be relocated to a permanent home at Royal Hospital for Children, in Glasgow.
