Shakespeare's Comedies Garden - Much Ado About Nothing
Shakespeare's Comedies Garden - Much Ado About Nothing
Designer: Sue Thomas / Contractor: R-T Design

The themes of Much Ado About Nothing, which is set in an Italian orchard, are reflected in this garden. The central pool symbolises the 'Nothing' of the title, and the tension between Beatrice and Benedick is illustrated by spiky, hot-coloured planting enclosed by box parterres. Don John's plot to besmirch Hero's reputation and thwart her marriage to Claudio is represented by the dark planting to the rear of the garden. Yellow roses, symbolising jealousy, intertwine with Clematis 'The Vagabond' and ascend to the balcony where the maid Margaret waits, signified by Rosa Margaret Merrill ('Harkuly'), playing her part in the deception. The cypresses embody the nightwatch, their lantern exposing the plot. Rosa William Shakespeare 2000 'Ausromeo' is watching as the scene unfolds.
