A garden which won two awards at last week's Royal Horticultural Society Flower Show in Cardiff is to be permanently relocated just yards from where it was on show.

Designers Andrew Fisher Tomlin and Dan Bowyer won best in show and a RHS gold award for their woodland garden.

It was inspired by the firm's work in north Wales for charity Blind Veterans UK where they have designed a four-acre (1.6 hectare) garden from a woodland.

The garden will remain in Bute Park.

RHS judges praised the exhibit, part of the 10th RHS Flower Show Cardiff, for "demonstrating the beguiling effect of pairing woodland plants and excellent stonework".

Andrew Fisher Tomlin, director of the Surrey-based firm, said "Whenever we have created show gardens we make an effort to find a permanent home for the garden either as a whole or in part, otherwise all that creativity and construction effort can be lost."
