If there is anything to make your overgrown garden look more miserable, it’s the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Lush green lawns, meticulously trimmed hedges and exotic flowers are to be expected each year. But this year, green-fingered visionaries created some spectacular oases for the event at the Royal Hospital.

The Laurent-Perrier Chatsworth Garden, designed by Dan Pearson, won the award for the best show garden.

Among the other stand-out gardens, Adam Frost, who is well accustomed to winning gold medals at the show, created a Urban Retreat, complete with a modern garden path and minimalist shed.

The M&G garden, designed by Jo Thompson and inspired by her childhood in Dorset featured a natural swimming pond and a two-storey oak building, as well as a rose garden.

The planets need for water was the driving force behind Matthew Wilson’s Royal Bank of Canada Garden. It is split into three sections: a dry garden, a water harvesting zone and an edible garden.

It’s enough to inspire even the least green-fingered souls.
