When you’ve already won one gold and ‘Best in Show’ accolade and two silver medals at RHS Chelsea, how do you come up with a garden design to do it again? The answer is to create a garden that pushes the boundaries of garden design building on a passion for nature and demonstrating versatility and creativity, imparting the designers love for his craft.
Yorkshire man Jamie Dunstan, 41, RHS Chelsea Gold winner in 2011 has created a visionary design for his 2013 garden; ‘As Nature Intended’. It sees a holistic appreciation of how nature influences art, medicine and food production through sculpture and hard and soft landscaping.
“I am delighted to be returning to Chelsea and working once again with my previous sponsors, Stockton Drilling,” said Jamie. “This year my garden will be a natural progression from ‘Winds of Change’ and will demonstrate how the use of sustainable products and creative planting, can show the versatility of modern garden design and how it can succinctly harmonise with properties of our past.”
With natural stone provided by Burlington Stone, barley, yew and willow sculptures by commended sculptor Emma Stothard and a sympathetic planting scheme, the garden will provide an oasis of peace and quiet amongst the hustle and bustle of Main Street at RHS Chelsea.
“We are thrilled to team up with Jamie once again and already are very excited about the visionary design that he has created,” commented Fiona O’Connell proprietor Stockton Drilling. “His amazing flair for garden design is superb and ‘As Nature Intended’ is a garden that brings core elements of nature together.”
“It was very important to me that I created a garden that contrasted with the more industrial and reclaimed elements from the last garden,” said Jamie. “I hope to inspire anyone who visits the garden and I am determined and hopeful that this year’s garden will prove to a winner once again.”
Jamie and his team will be on hand each day at Chelsea to share his considerable design and horticultural knowledge imparting their enthusiasm and vision for the garden with all visitors to the stand.
RHS Chelsea Flower Show commences on 21st May and runs until 25 May.
The ‘As Nature Intended’ garden can be found on Main Avenue.
