This 10m long window box outside Locanda Locatelli bowled me over when I first saw it last July – it looked like a summer meadow, transported to a London street.

Now, it looks like a spring border on steroids. The bergenias provide flashes of pink, while the grasses and Leucojum aestivum (summer snowflake) give it an airy feel. It smells sublime. 

This could so easily have been planted with the usual spring bedding, just like the rest of the building, which is currently sporting colour co-ordinated primulas. Hats off to whoever came up with this.

  1. Wow, they are really making an effort. It must be very cheery to see a full garden in a ‘window box’.
    Have a great weekend :)

  2. Wow, really impressive! Great ideas for next year! Not a huge Bergenia fan, but they look fantastic here.

  3. I think this was designed by Declan Buckley Associates.
