Planting up this sensory garden in Exeter presented a number of challenges and inspirational moments. To engage and connect with people who will interact with the garden it was important to consider a range of plant characteristics and qualities. We used plants with scented flowers and foliage, textured foliage and leaves that provide a sense of movement and interaction all year round. The planting and combinations have been very much inspired by the work of the Sensory Trust especially their recent garden at the RHS Hampton Court flower show.
