Matthew Wilson wins RHS Chelsea Flower Show People's Choice award

The Welcome to Yorkshire garden has won the people's vote at Chelsea.

Designer Wilson said he was disappointed with his silver medal but the People's Choice voting helped make up for that.

The garden is inspired by the medieval Great East Window at York Minster, which is nearing the end of a 10-year restoration, the garden features a 5 x 3m panel of stained glass made using the same methods employed in 1405. Despite its ancient inspiration, the garden mixes the old and new, with state of the art technology used in the construction of the garden buildings alongside the 600 years of living history from the York glaziers and stonemasons.
