The garden, influenced by the designs of Barcelona's famous architect, is sponsored by Viking Cruises, which operates a route that stops there. The show runs from 23 to 17 May 2017.

The Viking Cruises Garden of Inspiration will reflect the colours, art and culture of Barcelona combining colourful mosaics, a fluid ‘folded’ marble bench and metal sculptures of agave plants, reminiscent of the work of Barcelona’s most famous architect, Antoni Gaudi, with a mix of blooms in flaming oranges, scarlets and yellows, deep lavender blues and pale lilacs.

Landscape architect-turned-garden designer Eberle said: "Barcelona is both an amazing destination, but also a city of great culture. There is an incredible amount of modern art built into the city through its distinctive architecture. Gaudi’s designs in particular were inspired by nature so it makes sense to create a garden inspired by his designs."

This year Eberle won gold and Best Artisan Garden for her Viking’s Mekong Artisan Garden, her tenth RHS show gold.
