Bugg, 23, was given the double crown for The Albert Dock garden, which was inspired by Liverpool's Albert Dock.

Commenting on his win, Bugg said:  "I feel ecstatic, really just amazing."

On going solo from his partner Hallenga, he said:  "It's been hard working without her but I'm really pleased that I got this garden completed and won without her; it's fantastic."

Hugo Bugg will go on to help out in the build of the Laurent Perrier garden at Chelsea Flower Show 2011.

"It will be a really good experience next year," he added.

The other finalists - Olivia Stewart (25) and William Quarmby (27) - were awarded joint second and given RHS Silver Gilt medals.

RHS shows director Bob Sweet said:  "The three designers had to offer something with an element of the North West; something a little bit different.

"We will soon be launching Young Designer of the Year 2011."

Each of the designers was given £12,OOO to build their garden.
