Flower show full of talking points

Transporting city dwellers to the Surrey Hills using scent and sound generated by plant energy, the University of Surrey has teamed up with Silent Pool Gin to present an anti-stress garden at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show  running from Tuesday 21st to Saturday 25th May.

See the press release for further information about the collaboration between the Centre for Environment and Sustainability, Department of Music and Media and Silent Pool Gin.  

An article published in the Sunday Express May 12th edition quoted Professor Richard Murphy “In a sense, it is almost the plants and flowers talking to us, providing an insight into what they are experiencing through physiological events such as photosynthesis, stem flow and water movement.  We hope that through the sound field we have created, visitors will get a sense of what is happening in the plants and the power they have.”
