Chelsea gold: Creating the perfect garden

Landscape designer Andy Sturgeon has been awarded his sixth gold medal at the 2012 Chelsea Flower Show for his Arts & Crafts-inspired garden for sponsors M&G Investments. The garden incorporates natural materials such as copper, English oak and Purbeck stone. Key plants include peony Paeonia 'Claire de Lune', Trollius 'Cheddar' and Iris chrysographes 'Black Form'.

Take a tour around Andy's medal-winning garden and meet the team that helped make the Chelsea 'wow' factor possible, such as nurserymen Mark Straver and Robin Wallis from Hortus Loci and metalworkers from Guild Sculpture.
