I entered the NS&I Competition to design a modern, sustainable vegetable/ fruit garden for BBC Gardener's World Live 2010, and was one of three winners. 

Covering just 25 sqaure metres 'The Salad Bar' Garden is an organised, practicle and aesthetic space in which to grow your own food - a beautiful garden that the whole family can enjoy.

The wooden circular bar unit incorporates a storage area and integral cold frame and seed tray - and can be used to enjoy the fruits of your labour in the garden.  The large curved wall will be painted with blackboard paint to keep a regular schedule of work needed inthe garden - and for the show as array of recipes that can be made with all the plants in the garden. The plants will all be delicious in salads - including fruit salads.  With a garden this size it is important that the area is as productive as possible and looks good.
