Chelsea 2013: Hilliers Win 68th Consecutive Gold at Chelsea

Hilliers Risk Garden At Chelsea Flower Show 2013
Hilliers won their 68th consecutive Gold medal at the 2013 RHS Chelsea Flower Show with their garden Risk. A stunning garden contrasting bright colours, I particularly liked the building above contrasted with the vivid pink seating.

The Hillier display is always impressive, and this year they seem to have exceeded themselves, this water feature is stunning.

The towering silver birch trees compliment the war memorial around which the garden is built.

And who doesnt like a well grown monkey puzzle.
This was one of my favourite gardens in the grand pavilion, and to be honest it is much more of a real garden than many of the show gardens outside, a very well deserved gold medal to Hilliers!
