The Telegraph Garden for the 2012 RHS Chelsea Flower Show will be designed by Sarah Price.
This will be Price’s first full-size show garden at Chelsea Flower Show, although she has previously won silver medals in 2007 & 2008 for smaller garden designs.
Previous accolades include a gold medal in the Conceptual Show Garden Category at the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show in 2006. Price is also the co-designer of the 2012 Gardens at the Olympic Park in east London and remains at the core of the team planning the post-Games legacy design and maintenance of the gardens.
For the last three consecutive years (2009, 2010 & 2011) The Telegraph’s garden has been awarded the top prize of Best Show Garden by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) judges.
The design for this year’s garden is intended to evoke the beauty and romance of wild places within the British landscape. Perennials, rushes, grasses and meadow flowers grow around an intricate pattern of pools in Chilmark limestone.
Drifts of grasses and rushes, such as Deschampsia cespitosa and Juncus species create a background to emergent perennials and exquisite wildflowers.
Sarah Price said: “’I’m looking forward to creating a really beautiful garden, one that evokes the romance and wildness of my favourite British landscapes.”
