The sound of music from an Alpine horn sounded amid the miniature mountains and genuine Swiss alpine meadows displayed in the Swiss Tourism board garden at the recent RHS Hampton Court Palace Show.
'Year of Water'
Members of the Swiss Tourism Board, who sponsored the garden, were at the show to promote the country as a genuinely beautiful summer holiday destination with the theme of 'The Great Outdoors' being a major part of any holiday. 2012 has been nominated as the ‘Year of Water’ by the Swiss in celebration of their lakes, rivers and glaciers.
‘The Swiss Alpine Garden’ was designed and built to reflect this natural beauty and the silver guilt medal reflected the high standards expected throughout the country.
