Design Brief

A celebration and showcase of quality plants grown in by professionals. A combination of both common and rare plants blended together to create and engaging and colourful garden. The longer you look at the garden the more you see. Growers and nurserymen have a passion and a unique skills of growing the best plants. Passion is an expression of my personality and my passion for plants. The more adventurous you are with plants the more exciting the result.

Behind every garden is a story. I want to inspire others to create their own gardening story. Passion shows you can create your own home garden using plants and simple materials.

 Key Components

Captures the spirit of the show- Flowers

Engages the different forms of plants through the eye of the viewer. 

Contrasts forms of plants through tones of pink

Inspire - Garden design in New Zealand is generally lacking the depth in plants I feel approaching Ellerslie with a focus on plants, will capture the public and set a precedent to use more plants and colour in home gardens. 

Grow a garden with plants not build a garden with structures

After many months of planning and  a  week of construction a pink garden Passion was created. Sally's Garden 'Passion' The power of pink flowers has won the love of the visitors at Ellerslie Flower Show.
