A WORTHING shop has unveiled its latest window display - a vertical garden.

The 2.5m high installation at independent jean specialist The Griffin, in Warwick Street, has been designed by award-winning landscape architect Jade Goto.

It has sculptural neon lighting in a variety of colours.

The concept is a nod to the use of organic cotton traditionally used in the denim making process and included the plant Indigofera tinctoria and Gossypium hirsutum which are used traditionally to create indigo dye and for cotton production.

Director Luke Dancy said: “This is the first in what we hope will be a series of collaborations with designers and artists, to create exciting and dynamic installations within our Worthing shops.

“We enjoy creating imaginative windows and hope that they contribute to the town centre initiative to improve trading conditions within Worthing.

“Living walls have become a recent trend in interiors and gardens, offering a slice of nature to urban environments.”

Ms Goto said: “I have found that green walls offer the perfect solution to bringing nature in to small urban or spaces and once the irrigation system is installed they are surprisingly easy to maintain which our clients appreciate.

“Since moving to the Sussex area I have started to specialise in coastal green walls which are well suited to the local climate.”
