With just three weeks to go before he starts building the garden, Ollie Pike makes a final check on his precious plants at Cliff Bank Nursery near Harrogate.

Growing plants that will convey the idea of a meadow or churchyard, swathes of British natives to be planted in drifts, has been the job of new plant growers Ben and Laura. The couple have recently re-opened Cliff Bank Nursery, which had been growing plants for the last 100 years. 

It was to them that Ollie Pike turned when he wanted beautiful British native plants for the Psalm 27 Garden. Now, with just a few weeks to go before the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park, Ollie makes a final check on the plants to ensure that they are Show-ready.
