‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’, designed by Anoushka Feiler for Astellas Pharma, was awarded a Gold Medal and the title of Best Show Garden.

Representing a journey to freedom from the troubling symptoms of Overactive Bladder, the garden features a bright and vibrant bridge reaching across a black, swirling whirlpool.

‘Light at the End of the Tunnel’, inspired by designer Matthew Childs' experiences after being injured in the bombing at Edgware Road in London on 7 July 2005, was awarded Best Conceptual Garden and a Gold Medal.

Representing hope and recovery, the garden takes visitors on a journey from a traumatic start, with a narrow, dark opening in a dark, imposing wall, through to a lighter, more spacious planted area.

Landform Consultants achieved the top award with two gardens at the show this year. Designed by Catherine MacDonald, ‘The Landform Garden’, which was inspired by aspects of the High Line in New York, won Best Summer Garden.

‘Our First Home, Our First Garden’, designed by Nilufer Danis for Landform Consultants Ltd, was awarded the title of Best Low Cost, High Impact garden. The garden demonstrates how a young couple in a new home can create a spectacular garden on a small budget.

World of Gardens is a new category at the show this year, featuring landscapes from around the world. The ‘Discover Jordan Garden’, designed by Paul Hervey-Brookes brings the history and plants of the country to the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show and was awarded a Gold medal and the award for Best World of Gardens garden.
