Laced With Hope Garden RHS Chelsea Flower Show

Supershoes is a Charity that Frosts Landscapes is proud to support, their mission is to empower children fighting cancer.

The Supershoes Laced with Hope garden was designed by Laura Anstiss in her first-ever RHS Chelsea Flower Show Garden. We all think Laura captured the brief completely and the response to the garden was phenomenal and the reach that was gain from exhibiting at the Chelsea Flower show is immeasurable.

A Virtual Walk around the Garden

Have you ever "walked a mile is someone’s shoes” to see how it feels to them?
How about walking a mile in the shoes of a child diagnosed with cancer?

The words carved in the paving express the emotions of the family as they walk tentatively along the uneven path” always with hope in their heart.

The bench is an important representation of the community of “oncology” parents who find support from each other.

There are three pieces of Sculpture in the Garden designed by Alison Bell. The first piece Perseverance is holding the gold ribbon, the symbol of childhood cancer, echoing the laces on a pair of Supershoes. Looking at Stars, depicts the family, the nucleus of the child’s world, seeking inspiration, answers, and hope from the stars as they gaze heavenwards. The final piece the stunning King of the Castle sculpture captures the joy of receiving Supershoes.

The mural is all about art which is fundamental to Supershoes. It depicts the emotional rollercoaster on which families are now unwilling passengers and honours the Super Artists who give their time to create Supershoes. The palette for the planting matches the artwork, bringing unity to the whole piece.
