Ooty 23/8 limited edition vase has been designed by Nicola Slaney and is part of Moorcroft's 2019 RHS collection.Whilst living in Madras, Lady Beatrix was a keen observer of gardening practices in all the places she visited. Having left behind a wonderful garden in England, she sought to create a beautiful idyll in her new home, in Ootacamund, or ‚ÄòOoty‚Äô for short, but there were plenty of opportunities to travel to the north, and she wrote with enthusiasm of the gardens in Agra and New Delhi. She had a passion for growing both her beloved plants from home as well tropical varieties. She recommended that British gardeners in India should not try too hard to replicate an English garden, as lovely as it was to be reminded of home, but seek to embrace the native shrubs and creepers that she herself found interesting. Native to the Himalayas, a delicate sprig of Geranium wallichianum also known cranesbill, leaps and dances from Lady Beatrix Stanley‚Äôs parchment. This watercolour captured Nicola‚Äôs imagination and she transferred the flowers to a flared vase, backing them with a deep indigo. Stems bob and twist as an assortment of pink and purple flowerheads come to bloom.
