Dan Pearson and the Laurent-Perrier Chatsworth Garden Takes Gold!

Thought I’d add a quick blog post to let you know that Dan Pearson, the designer for our William Morris wild flower meadow at Compton Verney this year has today been awarded a Gold Medal at the Chelsea Flower Show for the Laurent-Perrier Chatsworth Garden

The garden was also awarded the prestigious Best Show Garden award, and is a real triumph for naturally planted gardens at Chelsea; a style that we know is close to Dan’s heart. The show garden is inspired by Chatsworth’s ornamental Trout Stream and Paxton’s rockery, and if you’re not planning to visit, the garden can be seen on the excellent RHS Chelsea Flower Show coverage tonight at 8pm, and throughout the week.

I’m sure this news will be warmly welcomed, a great achievement indeed for Dan and his team, and for the Chatsworth team who are new to the Chelsea show garden arena. We’re now even more thrilled as we look forward to The Dan Pearson and William Morris Meadow that is currently under preparation at Compton Verney – opening from June 27 as part of The Arts and Crafts House exhibition.
