Chelsea Flower Show gardens are designed to impress, amuse, educate and inspire. Some feature herbaceous borders bursting with colour and life; others are classically serene, with minimal planning - all have the sense of drama that defines a Chelsea Gold garden. These gardens are created over a period of two to three weeks, are on show for five days and then destroyed - this is an illustrated record of more than 30 of these gardens chosen for their originality, practicability, overall design and quality of planting. The author also interviews each of the designers revealing their thoughts on design and how it might be adapted to a domestic situation. "Chelsea Gold" has chosen more than 30 Gold Medal-winning show gardens from the RHS Chelsea Flower Show between the years of 1989-1999. The designs are by some of Britain's leading designers, including: Christopher Bradley-Hole; Fiona Lawrenson; Roger Platts; Bunny Guinness; Sir Terence Conran; Jane Fearnely-Whittingstall; and Xa Tollemache.Über den Autor:
