THE INS AND OUTS OF ECOLOGY
Ecology, in short, is the study of animals within their natural environment.

This garden has been created for the RNIB (Royal National Institute of Blind People) in partnership with Countryside. The mind’s eye is the human ability to create images or scenes without the need for sight. This garden is designed to stimulate the mind’s eye through a series of contrasting sensory experiences.
Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), the UK’s leading sight loss charity, in partnership with Countryside, a leading residential property developer, are proud to host the ‘Mind’s Eye’ garden at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show from Tuesday 20 – Saturday 24 May. The Mind’s Eye Garden, designed by award-winning landscape designers LDC, will feature in the show’s Fresh Garden category, which champions innovation and creativity, challenging designers to think outside the traditional perceptions of a Chelsea garden. The Mind’s Eye concept is the brainchild of designer Tom Prince, who makes his Chelsea debut this year. He has developed the garden in partnership with Alex Frazier, LDC’s talented landscape architect. Together with the wider LDC team, the young design duo have worked closely with RNIB to ensure the garden is inspired by and reflects the experiences of sight loss by using textures, sounds, tastes and smells to stimulate all the senses. As a result, the garden can be enjoyed equally by blind and partially sighted people as well as those who can see.
Gardeners are understandably concerned about their gardens following the recent flood events. It is time to take a deep breath and calmly consider what we know about soil and plants, then take positive steps to help get our gardens growing again. Sewage Waste Many gardeners are concerned about possible soil contamination from flood water. Most of these concerns are unwarranted. Soil organisms like fungi and bacteria use things that we regard as soil contaminants as food. Concerns expressed in the media and by some authorities in relation to vegetable gardens primarily relates to sewage contamination. Do not harvest and eat leafy green crops from vegetable gardens that have been covered with water. Most of these crops will have wilted and died anyway as they do not stand waterlogging.
