The show, which incorporates RHS Birmingham, saw 92,000 people through the gate over four show days, a reduction from the previous five.
Last year organisers said that 103,000 had attended over five days, an 11 per cent rise on 2012.
River Street Media's Sarah Sandys-Renton said: "The weather was extremely kind to us this year, with visitors enjoying relaxing in the outside areas with music, great food, including the MasterChef Streetfood Bus, shopping and family entertainment at the weekend."
Forty per cent of all exhibitors in the RHS Floral Marquee won gold medals, 39 in all, 43 were awarded silver-flora and 12 silver.
Despite the sun through the show, the build was tough with cold and rain making life difficult for the landscapers.
Nevertheless conditions warmed enough for Tony Smith’s exotic Cocoa Garden which scooped best in show alongside a gold medal.
Sandys-Renton said: "The Metamorphosis Gardens were 'a complete hit with the visitors' who enjoyed seeing the variety of designs that can be achieved with a fixed budget and materials."
The designers, all new to creating show gardens, were mentored by multi-award winning designer and RHS Chelsea Flower Show judge Roger Platts and collected two silver-gilt flora and two silver flora Medals.
The show’s youngest ever designer Harry Ward, 15, achieved a silver-gilt flora for his Down the Garden design.
"We were proud to host the four Gardeners’ World presenters across the show over three live stages. The BBC Gardeners’ World Theatre is always a firm visitor favourite. But new this year, the Kitchen Garden Talks Tent and Garden Solutions Stage provided ideal platforms for presentations and interactive demos," Sandys-Renton added.
The inside halls hosted a new destination feature Gardeners’ Inspiration which featured a cafe area in partnership with The Garden Centre Group.
The show also introduced a trade stand assessment this year and bespoke garden furniture company The Simple Things won best in show. The best RHS feature award went to the RSPB.
