Urban Garden – Gateshead Quayside – flowers fill areas for the Great Exhibition of the North

Ambitious plans by Chelsea Flower Show gold medalist and TV garden designer Diarmuid Gavin to set up a “majestic and unique” urban garden on the banks of the Tyne have been unveiled.

The Great Exhibition of the North will not be confined to our venues but will spill out onto the streets and form part of our landscapes. One particular outdoor highlight in planning is a “majestic and unique” Urban Garden on the banks of the Tyne. The mastermind behind these ambitious plans is Chelsea Flower Show gold medalist and TV garden designer Diarmuid Gavin.

The proposed plans for the urban garden are for up to 90 shipping containers to be installed on the 192 metre-long site at Hillgate Quay which would have two main areas:

  • The Plaza Garden
  • The Main Urban Garden
  • The Plaza Garden would have 30 shipping containers set out to create open walkways and an enclosed area.  It would house start-up businesses, shops, galleries, cafes and food outlets.  The Main Urban Garden would have 60 stacked shipping containers to represent a walled garden.
