London Office Plants at the Chelsea Flower Show

Corporate Flowers

It was a big week last week. Our London office plants staff were all at Chelsea looking at the show gardens, gaining inspiration for some 2011 designs. We see that Cleve West’s Daily Telegraph garden, won best in show at the Chelsea Flower Show. It is his fourth garden at Chelsea, where he won Gold Medals in 2006 and 2008. West declared: “Words cannot express how delighted I am feeling today. I would like to thank the entire team, including Crocus, which worked tirelessly to prepare and build this garden.”

The design was loosely inspired by the Roman ruins at Ptolemais in Libya. Key features include a sunken space using reclaimed Cotswold stone for paving and walls, Sophora japonica trees and contemporary sculpture. West added: “We have created a mixture of traditional and new styles which produces an interesting energy so I hope it gives people the inspiration to do the same.”

The London Office Plants staff agreed that the best urban garden was Jamie Dunstan’s Winds of Change, which was sponsored by Stockton Drilling.

The Korean garden Hae-woo-so (Emptying One’s Mind) created by Jihae Hwang won best garden in the new artisan category.

Among the Gold Medals awarded were Chetwood’s and Collins’ B&Q Garden, Diarmuid Gavin’s Irish Sky Garden, Jim Fogarty’s Australian garden and Sarah Eberle’s Monaco Garden.
