The residential garden in Garsington, Oxfordshire, co-created with fellow designer Alice Bowe, contains plants signature to Sarah Price’s work, including Sedum autumnalis, Stipa gigantea, and Schizostylis coccinea ‘Major.’

For Sarah Price’s 2007 RHS Chelsea Flower Show entry, “A City Garden,” sponsored by QVC, she conjured a painterly plant palette, including Cirsium rivulare ‘Atropurpureum,’ Anthriscus sylvestris ‘Ravenswing,’ Carex buchananii, Dianthus carthusianorum, and Gladiolus byzantinus. Poppies, irises, grasses, and perennials adorned the space, and Price incorporated a variety of hard materials like French sandstone and distressed antique mirrors. The graceful forms of two umbrella-shape Koelreuteria paniculata (goldenrain tree) framed the small space, forming a sense of enclosure.
Persicaria amplexicaulis ‘Firedance’ and P. amplexicaulis ‘Rosea.’
For the 2007 RHS Chelsea Flower Show entry, "A City Garden," Price used some of her favorite specimens, including Papaver orientale ‘Patty’s Plum.’;

Iris ‘Kent Pride.’
Trifolium repens ‘William’ and Carex testacea.
Price’s drawing of her garden, sponsored by The Daily Telegraph, for the 2012 RHS Chelsea Flower Show (May 22-26), was inspired by the wild places in the British landscape and evokes its beauty and romance. Perennials, grasses, and meadow flowers surround Chilmark limestone.
