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.
Manageing Director Hillier Nurseries and designer of the Risk Garden, Andrew McIndoe explained “Risk is the theme which links the Hillier and Beazley businesses. Beazley insure against risk, based upon their expertise and their depth of knowledge. At Hillier Nurseries, we have to engage all our experience and skills to overcome risk and so create successful and award-winning plants, exhibits and ultimately thriving gardens for our customers. Our Exhibit aims to be the ultimate masterclass in managing risk.”

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