Claire Whitehouse flies UK flag at Singapore Garden Festival

The biennial Singapore Garden Festival kicks off today (15 July) where designer Claire Whitehouse will fly the flag for the United Kingdom.

One of Asia’s most prestigious garden shows, the event brings together more than 30 international garden and floral designers.

Chelsea best in show winner Andy Sturgeon represented the UK at the show’s last outing in 2008, and he told HW it was high time the landscape design industry in the UK took note of the event which draws over 300,000 visitors.

Whitehouse has created 15 medal winning show gardens at Chelsea and Hampton Court and regularly works as an RHS judge.

Speaking before the show, she said:  "It’s going to be a great challenge to put together these gardens and there is a huge amount of interest in Singapore for the garden festivals like this so I am very privileged to be involved."

The event takes place at the Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre from 15-22 July.
