Get Tied-Up at the award winning Inner Temple Garden is a project that is part of the Chelsea Fringe, the alternative garden festival. Our 2016 Chelsea Fringe project celebrates flower arranging with home grown blooms through drop-in workshops, taught by our Head Gardener on how to create your own hand-tied flower bouquets.
At three acres, Inner Temple Garden is one of the largest privately owned gardens in the city of London, home to 1800 barristers, and has been cultivated since the 12th century when its purpose was more practical than pleasure. It is now a safe haven for lawyers, the general public and wildlife between the busy Fleet Street and Embankment.
The Garden has been transformed over the past eight years by Andrea Brunsendorf, Head Gardener, who has introduced experimental and contemporary planting to this historic garden. The Garden is planted using succession planting, which involves a mixture of permanent plants to create a framework and seasonal pockets which are changed twice a year to create the longest possible flowering seasons. The garden team raise many annual and biennial plants from seed every year, which are perfect for growing at home and can be cut for flower arranging throughout the year.
