Lots in Pots 2012
20th June to 26th June 2012
'Lots in Pots' was back in 2012, with the theme ‘scent’ and were on display in our garden between 20th and 26th June.
Twenty-one of Britain's leading gardeners, designers and writers have donated their expertise, imagination and hard work to plant large pots. The pots are donated by Capital Gardens and will be displayed throughout the Museum. The Garden Museum will auction the pots to raise money for our Horticultural Internship Programme for 2013.
Some of the designers who are taking part this year are Cleve West, The Lady Egremont, Tom Stuart-Smith, Lady Arabella Lennox Boyd and Gareth Scotland (our current Horticultural Intern). We would like to say a very special thank you to HRH The Prince of Wales who has kindly designed a pot for us.

Thanks to our auctioneer, James Alexander-Sinclair, and very generous supporters we raised just over £5,000 for our Horticultural Intern for 2012-2013. It was a wonderful night in the Museum. There are a few pictures of the evening on our Facebook page.
