The 2013 RHS Chelsea Flower Show Awards


This year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show has been another resounding success, and we are delighted to announce some of the winners.

Trailfinders Australian Garden presented by Fleming’s has been awarded Best Show Garden. The Trailfinders exhibit is frequently a popular exhibit at the show, with this year being no exception. The design encompassed a studio space floating above a flower like structure.

The Best Artisan Garden Award went to the Japanese Tokonoma Garden for their depiction of a traditional Japanese tatami room. The Best Fresh Garden Award went to the After the Fire exhibit, with the Diamond Jubilee award being handed to Waremhoven for their display of alliums and amaryllis.

The President’s award went to Blackmore and Langdon for their delphinium and begonia display.
