Medal winners announced at RHS Chelsea Centenary Show - Australians awarded Best Show Garden

The Trailfinders Australian Garden by Fleming's wins Best Show Garden and a Gold medal at Chelsea 2013
The Australians have taken top prize at this year's RHS Chelsea with Trailfinders Australian Garden by Fleming's winning the coveted Best Show Garden and a Gold medal. If you're off to Chelsea this week, you'll love this innovative garden, designed by Phillip Johnson, which showcases native Australian plants, set within an urban setting, while demonstrating the possibilities of sustainable landscaping.

I shall be featuring more gardens each day this week while RHS Chelsea 2013 is in full flower.
