Designer Sarah Eberle remains RHS Chelsea Flower Show’s most decorated designer with a total of 14 gold medals at the show. This year she celebrates the ‘treble double’: three years in a row of two golds, having also won for Viking Cruises garden.
Hillier's George Hillier said: "Chelsea is the lifeblood running through Hillier. It plays such a vital role in the business so we are absolutely delighted to have won gold for the 72nd time in a row. It is absolutely a team effort and I want to extend a huge thanks to every single person involved, from our designers Sarah and Caitlin to everyone that works so hard throughout the whole year to make it all possible.
"Our mission is to inspire the creation of green living spaces for now and the future and, by adding to our legacy, this year’s garden has certainly helped us achieve that."
"Having exhibited plants at Chelsea in some form for over 100 years and having now maintained the record for consecutive gold medals, the Chelsea Flower Show grows more important to Hillier each year," the company said.
