The Perennial Sanctuary Garden, designed by Tom Massey for Perennial at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2017, is a demonstration of the skills and generosity of the UK horticulture industry. As the only charity dedicated to supporting all those who work in or are retired from horticulture, Perennial relies on the support of the industry to raise its profile, promote its services for horticulturists and raise money to continue its work. The team behind the Perennial Sanctuary Garden includes leading contractor Landform Consultants, British plant supplier Hortus Loci and natural stone supplier London Stone.

Tom Massey has run his landscape and garden design practice from a base in Richmond Upon Thames since graduating from the London College of Garden Design in July 2015. Tom graduated with distinction and the coveted ‘External Judge’s Prize’; an award given by RHS Gold Medal winning designer Jo Thompson, who praised his work for its scope, ambition and individual style.

Tom was included in Pro Landscaper magazine’s inaugural ’30 Under 30’ in 2015 and he won both the residential and commercial design categories of the ‘Society of Garden Designers – Student Awards’ in 2016. In July 2016 Tom was awarded an RHS Gold Medal and ‘Best Conceptual Garden’ at his first time exhibiting at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show for The UNHCR ‘Border Control’ Garden, designed in collaboration with John Ward highlighting the refugee crisis.
