Garden designer Paul Hervey-Brookes is building a show garden at the Malvern Spring Flower Show in the UK. Working with celebrity chef Felice Tocchini, says Paul, "we are having a scale model edible cake of the garden made which will be auctioned for charity at the Gala Preview Evening."

"The garden as a whole is based on the classical painting 'Il Ballo Della Vita Humana' in which four people representing different stages in life, such as wealth or poverty dance in an continued circle to the music played by Father Time."

Paul was delighted to learn that Felice had chosen his garden for the edible cake creation as they are both passionate about gardens being an extension of the home, "not only as a sanctuary and place of refuge from increasingly busy lives but also as a source of seasonal healthy produce from vegetables, herbs and flowers."
