Winning Garden Design Unveiled for Hampton Court Flower Show


The winning RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show garden design has been chosen from hundreds of entries in a competition run with the BBC's One Show. Victoria Stothard was selected to create The One Show Garden at our flower show from 9-14 July.

The amateur gardener will now be mentored by The One Show gardener, Christine Walkden, and RHS Chelsea Flower Show Gold medal-winning designer, Adam Frost, for an action-packed journey learning about plants, garden design and landscaping, before creating the garden of her own design.

Hundreds of people submitted garden designs and entered the competition to create a family garden. Victoria’s design was selected from a final short list of three designs.

Seen from a child's perspective

Victoria’s garden design aims to remind adults what it is like to see the world in a new perspective, as if it was for the first time, as a child does. The garden will primarily be viewed from below, as if seen from the floor of a forest. The plants and sculptural features of the garden are enlarged and towering, making the onlooker feel small and child-like.

Dave Green from the RHS shows team says: “The standard of entries was really high and we had a difficult time selecting the winner.

“Vicky had an original and imaginative approach that led to a visually exciting garden. We felt that her creative confidence would be a valuable addition to the professional team she will join at the show.”

In the garden there is a large ‘toadstool’ play house for children and gigantic tree roots spreading from the far right corner. A natural waterfall flows over the bark of the tree roots, and back into the surface, creating a water feature.
