Since Foxtel’s ‘Selling Houses Australia’ TV show began in 2008 my husband and I have been big fans, especially of Charlie Albone the gardening guru on the show and two times Chelsea Flower Show Medal Winner.
A few months ago I had a chance meeting with Charlie outside his newly opened studio for his landscaping business Inspired Exteriors. Charlie and his gorgeous wife, interior designer Juliet Love, graciously offered to place some large foundgardens in their store.
The image on the wall is of the most spectacular vertical garden Charlie built for the Shangri La Singapore hotel, follow the hotel link and check it out!
Inspired Exteriors have been working on a big landscaping job at Wahroonga and recently I received a call from Charlie asking me to make three large organic pots filled with blue “glaucous” succulents for this incredible house. Wow what an honour!
These three foundgardens were delivered to the site where they will be situated near a large statue, the blue-green colours to complement the patina of the statue.
