3. RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2014 01993 771697 Best Show Garden Gold: Laurent-Perrier The Laurent-Perrier garden invites a contrast between stillness and movement with materials such as bold, brash leaves amongst delicate flowers. The result is a peaceful space where you are free to be calm and simply observe the natural beauty.
4. 01993 771697 Best Show Garden Silver: The Massachusetts Garden Designed by: Susannah Hunter and Catherine MacDonald Built by: Landscapes Sponsored by: Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism (MOTT) Cape Cod helped inspire this garden after the artists went for a trip there together. The sand can easily be linked with the classic Cape Cod landscape and sea shores.

RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2014 01993 771697 Best Show Garden Silver: The Massachusetts Garden The backdrop to the garden is created with roses and hydrangeas and the leather panelling depicts a beautiful coastal scene. The building in the garden is further inspired by their trip- in particular Provincetown where the two artists stayed.
6. 01993 771697 Best Show Garden Bronze: The BrandAlley Garden Designed by: Paul Hervey-Brookes Built by: Big Fish Landscapes Sponsored by: BrandAlley Like many things, this garden was inspired by the Italian Renaissance gardens and mimics its ideals of class, glamour and the ideal lifestyle.

8. 01993 771697 Minster Pavings Favourite! BBC/RHS Peoples Choice Award: Help For Heroes Hope On The Horizon Designed by: Mat Keightley Built by: Farr and Robert Sponsored by: David Brownlow This garden was created as a beautiful, visual representation of the road to recovery injured soldiers have to go through when they are injured in service. Granite blocks represent the soldiers physical wellbeing whereas plants are used to symbolise the mental health.
9. RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2014 01993 771697 Minster Pavings Favourite! BBC/RHS Peoples Choice Award: Help For Heroes Hope On The Horizon Untamed plants begin the garden and slowly become more controlled and mature as you weave your way through. Hornbeams capture the eye at the end of the path with a sculpture of a horizon to remind soldiers of the bright future ahead of them. The spectacular sense of journey created in this garden made it Minster Pavings favourite!
