Inspired By A Visit To Madrid

Colour Inspiration, A Visit To Madrid April 2016

For this year's spring display the colour scheme in the corner border is based on the borders seen outside the Royal Palace of Madrid last year, yellow pansies, orange pansies and yellow daffodils with an orange trumpet.

All Planted (October 2016)

Using the Spanish planting as inspiration, to recreate the colours the gardeners planted 406 wallflowers, 'Sunset Yellow' and 'Sunset Orange', and 200 tulips, 'Ballerina' and 'Westpoint', see entry 12th October 2016 'From Venice To Madrid'.

Heat In The Corner (April 2017)

Since the start of this month the heat of Madrid has been felt in a small corner of Worcester College and, as the plants mature, it seems to be getting hotter and hotter. The team are really pleased with the result, the best display seen in the corner in recent years, but where will their inspiration come from for next year's display?
