2018 – A new direction
GardenUp Greenwalls emerged out of the gardening event held in the Sheffield Botanical Gardens in 2014.
Here is a new opportunity to introduce plants into the mix to decorate homes, offices and public spaces in a way that has hitherto been the preserve of sculptors, interior designers and architects.
GardenUp introduces the planted Cassette – a living, eco-canvas that allows shapes, colours and scents to be ‘painted’ on to the wall.
2014 – The First Show:
Sheffield geared up to host its own ‘design-led’ Flower and Gardening Show in June 2014 in a groundbreaking move to turn the city into a centre of garden and landscaping excellence.
The Botanical Gardens were the setting for ‘Garden Up’ – an innovative two-day show sponsored by Investec Wealth & Investment, which showcased the very best talent from the worlds of horticulture, architecture, landscape and design.
Local universities, schools, community groups, businesses, artists and craftspeople all signed up to be a part of the event that aimed to encourage future partnerships and stimulate technology transfer.
The council gave their full backing to an event they believe can be a key stimulus for the local economy and help further Sheffield’s ‘greenest city’ label. The event was a breathtaking outdoor garden show complete with exhibitors, sales stands and show gardens.
