London South West, UK - Lichen Garden Antiques supplied an antique well head, carved stone flame finials, reclaimed walling stone and reclaimed paving to the Brewin Dolphin garden at Chelsea Flower Show designed by Cleve West which won a Gold medal and was voted Best Show Garden by the judges.

This was the second year in a row that the Cotswolds company has helped to win the Best Show Garden award. "It takes almost a year to put one of these show gardens together and is a huge amount of work for everyone involved," said an ecstatic Darren Jones, Lichen's managing director, "Cleve is an inspirational designer to work with and we are thrilled to share in his success."

The walling stone and wellhead both came from the Cotswolds, but Darren traveled to Europe to source paving and the flame finials.

Architectural Forum lent Diarmuid Gavin some spiral staircases, green enamel lampshades and maybe a bath or two for his 80ft pyramid garden which won a special award in the gift of RHS president for Most Creative Show Garden. He also won a silver-gilt medal. "I feel extremely honoured to receive the Most Creative Show Garden award as its the first time it's been awarded by this president and hasn't been awarded to any garden for the last five years. It's made all the hard work my entire team has put in over the last year totally worth it," he told the Daily Mirror where he is a gardening columnist.

Andy Triplow of Masco and The Old Radiator Co was also a contributor, lending a gazebo to Tendercare, on a stand of plants trees and shrubs which also won a silver medal.
