As We Prepare for Our Christmas Break…

We would like to wish you, your families, friends, and loved ones a very happy holiday and all best wishes for 2023. We also hope for your health and happiness in the New Year to come.

As is our tradition, instead of sending cards we will be making a donation to Greenfingers Charity who fundraise to build gardens for children’s hospices throughout the UK.

We also wanted to say a huge thank you for all of your support throughout 2022, it has been an extraordinary year for us as a practice and we look forward to an even better 2023.

Our studio will close at 5pm on Thursday 22nd December 2022 and reopen on Tuesday 3rd January 2023.

We look forward to creating more beautiful outdoor spaces with you upon our return, and to seeing what 2023 has in store for AMPG.

Sincerely,

Ann-Marie, Mary, Gemma, and Penny

Highlights of 2022

Chelsea 2022

We returned to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show with Gaze Burvill. For the second year in a row, we celebrated 5 stars for our trade stand. With its bold colour palette catching people’s eye, it was enjoyed by everyone! From our volunteer planting team, to Dame Judi Dench herself!

Chelsea was quickly followed by the Philadelphia Flower Show. Where the team received 3 awards, including the prestigious Environmental Award from the American Horticultural Society. It was such an honour to take part in the longest running flower show in the world.

SGD Awards 2022

In September we were thrilled and honoured to accept not one, but two awards at the Society of Garden Designers Awards 2022 for The World Food Garden at RHS Wisley in Surrey. Both our World Food Garden and our Wildlife Garden surround the Royal Horticultural Society’s Hilltop, the home of gardening science.
