Dreamscape garden Aurora Arbora was the company's first exhibition at the show, but was declared by celebrity gardener Joe Swift to be the Tatton Park highlight. Swift described it as creative, energetic and a conceptual piece to be admired.

The show garden was designed by Dan Newby of Dreamscape Gardens and architect Rob Glass. It used a unique planting scheme, a waterfall wall and tree house prism covered in solar panels to power coloured lights in the garden in an interpretation of the Northern Lights.

The RHS judges praised the garden for its ambitious design, originality and excellent attention to detail.

Elements of the show garden were then brought to Dreamscape's garden at Dig the City in Manchester, held earlier in August, where it won gold.
