Another RHS Chelsea Flower Show Gold!

Sending a huge congratulations to Hillier Garden Centre for their record breaking 72nd consecutive gold medal at the Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower Show 2017 for their “Spring” by Hillier garden design.

Designed and created by Sarah Eberle who is now celebrating her own 14th gold medal at the show, and also assisted in the process by 2016’s RHS Young Designer of the Year Caitlin McLaughlin – the objective was to “bring together the word in all its meanings. From seasonality and the anticipation of the first growth, foliage and flower; to a sense of movement and dynamism, all fuelled with a spirit of excitement and simple pleasures. To inspire the creation of green living spaces for now and the future.”

As stated in a press release by Hillier Garden Centre, “The focal point of the design is a 4.3-metre-high metallic spring with hoops that span the length of the entire garden. The hoops wind through the centre of the garden, leading to a water feature and pool, drawing the eye and framing the garden. At the heart of the spiral, where the coils gather, is a square pavilion area. Together with a series of pathways and granite viewing platforms around the edge of the garden, a perfect vista from all angles is ensured.”
