Chelsea Flower Show: Brilliant blooms, glittering prizes
Wednesday 26 May 2010
Amid the multi-coloured hues on display at the Chelsea Flower Show yesterday, only one colour really mattered: gold. A record number of gold medals – the Royal Horticultural Society's highest award – were handed out, with eight show gardens winning the coveted accolade.
Of the floral displays, Hillier Nurseries picked up their 65th gold medal, and Bloms Bulbs won their 60th. Show garden winners included Tourism Malaysia, a Chelsea debut by James Wong. Best in Show went to Andy Sturgeon's design for The Daily Telegraph, while the Ace of Diamonds garden, designed by David Domoney and featuring real gems, was deemed to be worth only a bronze.
