At the RHS Chelsea Flower Show every single show garden, in every category has the opportunity to win a Gold Medal. There are no limitations on the number of Gold, Silver-Gilt, Silver, or Bronze medals that the judges can award, nor is there a requirement for any medal to be awarded – if none of the gardens are of Gold Medal standard, then no Gold Medals will be presented.
I interviewed Surrey based Garden Designer David Neale, of NealeRichards Garden Design, for the November 2015 edition of Vantage Point Magazine. During this interview David Neale spoke about his hopes for the future, and his ambition to design and build a garden for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. I am thrilled to discover that David’s dreams have now come true!
I caught up with award-winning garden designer and horticulturalist, Chris Beardshaw, at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show, to find out more about his design and the concept behind his Gold Medal winning, Morgan Stanley Healthy Cities Garden, which was designed by Chris, for the community in Poplar, South East London and exhibited at the 2015 RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
