Trevor Sutton has made 18 small oil paintings on oak wood panels, 15 of which are mounted on oak stakes in a similar way to horticultural labels used for identifying plants. These 'label paintings' are all titled after the names of roses in the Kunstgarten and each is to be placed in the earth alongside its 'namesake' rose bush.
Carol Robertson constructed small flexible 3-dimensional works made of wire covered with coloured silk, cotton thread and string. These net-like objects are to be discreetly placed all over the garden, interacting with plants, flowers, insects and birds.
