EBV Green Spaces

We’ve set up EBV’s gardens and green spaces to thrive by selecting plants that are well suited to our environment.

Our landscapers, Dan Palmer, Jeremy Prentice and the team from Very Edible Gardens, spent time understanding EBV’s whole environment – factors like the sun and wind, and how those will change throughout the day and the seasons – before making their selections.

We’ve shared those plant selections and accompanying care advice here, so that you can help your garden to thrive too.
