Paul Hervey-Brookes has won a gold medal and walked away with the award for the best planting in show at the Gardening World Cup, writes Jonathan Ward.

Leon Kluge's "breaking free" garden won best in show.

Judges described Hervey-Brookes as "the young prince of British garden design".

The event is in its fourth year and is held annually in the Dutch them park of Huis Ten Bosh, located close to the southern tip of Japan, just south of Nagasaki.

Huis Ten Bosch is a residential-style resort built after a mediaeval 17th century Dutch town. The Palace Huis Ten Bosch, was built with special permission from the Dutch royal family, and is a reproduction of the residence of Her Majesty the Queen of The Netherlands.

In English, Huis Ten Bosch means "house in the forest". True to its name this residential-style resort has canals running throughout, is surrounded by greenery, forests, amusements, shops, restaurants, five distinct hotels, a marina and residential area.

The resort is striving to become the top flower resort in the world and flowers in full bloom can be found all throughout the year.
