Awards have been announced at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2014 with The Laurent-Perrier Garden (below) designed by Luciano Giubbilei named as Best Show Garden as well as coming away with an RHS Gold.
The Laurent-Perrier Garden was one of six show gardens awarded an RHS Gold Medal at the famous flower show, while seven Silver-Gilt medals were handed out, and one Silver and one Bronze.
Alex Denman, RHS Head of Shows Development, says, ‘The RHS Chelsea Flower Show stands for the highest levels of horticultural excellence, and the exhibitors this year have demonstrated their incredible level of knowledge and ability with their fantastic exhibits.
‘The achievement of Laurent-Perrier is fantastic. The attention to detail and evocative feel of the stunning garden from Luciano is a great tribute to his skill as well as the growers and landscapers who have contributed to their garden.’
Hugo Bugg, the designer of the RBC Waterscape Garden (below), won his first RHS Gold Medal, becoming, at the age of 26, the youngest ever gold medal winner at the Chelsea Flower Show.
Other Gold medallist show gardens include The Homebase Garden designed by Adam Frost, in association with Alzheimer’s Society, Cleve West’s M&G Garden (below), No Man’s Land: ABF The Soldiers’ Charity Garden to mark the centenary of World War One, and The Telegraph Garden.
