“This is Epic!” Love your Garden 2018 Episode 6
Supermum Fiona Kirlew is one of those incredible people who just gives to all above herself. She has fostered more than 40 children, despite only being 36 years old and was nominated by one of her former foster children as a gesture of just how much they owe to Fiona's commitment to giving them the best start in life.
The ever creative and thoughtful Love Your Garden team went back to Fiona’s Jamaican roots to create a garden with different areas that could be enjoyed by all her extended family. They chose 3 of our most bold colours to identify where the different areas in the garden begin and end. The main colour used was Protek Exterior Teal and then Drawing Room Gold and Giddy Green.
We were thrilled to hear Alan say he loved our new colour Royal Exterior Hadspen Blue “Battleship Grey with a hint of blue” perfectly described it. It was used on the teenager’s hang out; a very cool space with the graffiti mural and tin roof.
Also seen was an old favourite Royal Olive Green for the home-made trellis and bike store. A great understated colour that worked very well with the red-brick house.
We also loved the Mobilane Living Wall and it’s beautiful planting, such a great idea. All the planting was a great inspiration, the “exotic imposters” I am sure will be seen throughout Britain’s gardens.
