Meet the designers

Find out more about the leading garden designers we've had the privilege of collaborating with at RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Charlotte Harris & Hugo Bugg

Charlotte Harris and Hugo Bugg, described by the Royal Horticultural Society as “pioneering design talents of their generation”, will be working with us on the M&G Garden for 2021. Drawing on experience from their previous award-winning appearances, taking home two gold medals and one silver-gilt, they have created a garden that stands for the importance of beautiful and vital green spaces in the places we need them most – our towns and cities.

Andy Sturgeon

Awarded 'Best in Show' for 2019, Andy and his team created a truly remarkable garden featuring a biodiverse range of pioneering plant species from around the world – including many unusual plants making their first appearance at Chelsea – all of which are able to grow and thrive in the British climate.

Sarah Eberle

Known for her thought-provoking designs, we were delighted to be working with 8 time gold-medal-winning designer Sarah Eberle. For Chelsea Flower Show 2019, Sarah teamed up with the Forestry Commission to mark the organisations centenary year in style.

Tom Stuart-Smith

Tom's 2018 garden was designed to evoke a romantic feel with enclosed areas and an intimate retreat at the centre. The design aimed to create a balance between enclosure and openness, modernity and tradition, through a rich diversity of texture and the use of topiary - but not as you will have traditionally seen it.

Sarah Price

Sarah's Gold medal-winning garden from 2018 aimed to invoke a peaceful, dream-like haven, inspired by Mediterranean landscapes. The garden featured twisted wisteria stems, warmth-loving Lagerstroemia trees, scented thyme and, in the very heart of the garden, two mature pomegranate trees. In line with the meadow style planting, grasses lent softened edges to the mix of flowers.

James Basson

We loved working with James Basson on the Best in Show garden in 2017. It was also a real honour to win the award for the best constructor this year - the first time this award plus Best in Show and gold medal went to the same garden. James makes gardens which celebrate plants in their wild state and for this garden he looked to Malta.

Dan Pearson

Winner of the best in show award in 2015, Dan Pearson’s garden for Laurent-Perrier was inspired by the grounds of Chatsworth House in the Derbyshire Dales.

Luciano Giubbilei

In 2014 Luciano Giubbilei created a garden for Laurent-Perrier which won a gold medal and the much-coveted best in show. The garden was cool and contemplative in its design, creating an intriguing interplay between natural elements and geometric structure.

Christopher Bradley Hole

Christopher Bradley-Hole’s garden in 2013 used the Japanese approach to garden design juxtaposed with a rendition of the English Landscape. Winning a gold medal, the concept recreated geometric field patterns, woodlands and a winding river on a much smaller scale.

Arne Maynard

Arne’s gardens always have lovely structural elements, and this was no exception. Winning a gold medal in 2012, he used his signature copper beech, box topiary, hazel and roses. His choice of perennials were designed to create a deliciously scented garden in shades of pink and claret that would delight senses of smell and sight at the same time.

Cleve West

Winning a gold medal and best in show in 2011, this was Cleve's 8th Garden at Chelsea and was loosely inspired by a trip to Libya he made in 2010. The planting was jewel like - the yellows and deep garnets dazzling against the hard landscaping. Everywhere you looked there was a plant that is special or unusual.
