2011 – Irish Sky Garden, designed by Diarmuid Gavin

Soft and subtle planting created a base for one of the most unusual gardens Chelsea has seen; a garden in the sky. Taking the shape of a large pink pod containing what was essentially a traditional garden, Diarmuid created a garden which thrilled and amused visitors.

2010 – The M & G Garden, designed by Roger Platts

Roger described this as “A traditional themed garden, very much the sort of garden that I think people can identify and understand. It is quintessentially a British garden full of plants.”
