Chelsea 2013 – Best In Show
The 2013 Australian entry to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, was designed and built by award winning designer Phillip Johnson. Designed around his guiding principles of sustainability, the focal points of which are a billabong, gorge and series of waterfalls. This design, sponsered by Wes Fleming of Flemings Nurseries, is the first Australian entrant to win the coveted “Best in Show” award at Chelsea.
The finished design, based on Phil’s own garden in Victoria, took a total of 17 days and over 2,500 man-hours to build, transforming what once resembled a bare soccer pitch into a sustainable garden retreat.
Chelsea comes alive throughout the duration of the show, with shops around Sloane Square going to great lengths to get into the garden show spirit.
