The beginning, a story about the show gardens - in the reportage Chelsea Flower Show 2012: Anniversary Parade.

Fresh Gardens

Green with… (The best garden in the Fresh-gardens category, Gold medal)

"Green with …" is a symbolic project that explores human emotions, namely, envy and desire. Envy, as expected, is green. All green parts of the structure are covered with artificial turf. This is a trap cage in which an envious person finds himself if he does not overcome his weaknesses. Orchids are kept out of reach in three translucent red cylinders in the center, because they, like the tulips and ferns present in the design, were once the object of desire and envy in the history of gardening.

The Soft Machine (Silver Plated Medal)

The name of this garden comes from the novel by William Burroughs, where "Soft Machine" is synonymous with the human body. By exercising on a stationary bike in this garden, a person participates in the process of pumping waste water, which then passes through the filter elements. Bunches of sedges on vertical walls, mosses on tables collect rainwater. The transparent legs of the tables resemble jets of water that flow into the symbolic ponds below them. Swamp vegetation not only serves as gardening, but also serves as an additional water filter. The garden is an engineering ecosystem that brings modern aesthetics and opens up new possibilities for gardening, sports, biodiversity and waste recycling, combining all of this into a single complex - Soft Machine.

The Renault Garden (Silver Plated Medal)

This project demonstrates the approach of Renault, which believes that a number of vehicle components can be reused, including in the garden. So, the chairs here are made from recycled plastic bottles. The design concept was drawn from the nature of a protected valley near Nice, where waterfalls cascade down steep slopes densely overgrown with ferns and other plants. At the same time, the entrance to it is a sterile dry scree. The pillars of natural sandstone waste mimic the walls of a valley, and the gravel pavement simulates a dry river bed. Reproduced the natural flora of those places where the shade-loving plants of wet rocks contrast with the dry Mediterranean vegetation on the ground. The garden was built as a modular one, after the show it will be dismantled and reconstructed on the territory of one of the schools.

Rainbows Children's Hospice Garden (Silver Medal)

Kindergarten for the Rainbows Hospice, staff and patient parents. The white acrylic fence is the backdrop for the silhouettes of people and plants - primarily for four multi-stemmed irgi trees. Transition stones, laid over a vegetal carpet replacing a pond, lead to a resting place with bright orange child seats. Nearby there is already a real mini-pond with a water lily. Polished stone in combination with gravel and groundcover creates an alternating texture. Outside, the garden is surrounded by a belt of lush green boxwoods and perennials, matching orange gravelates with the color of the chairs. An additional touch is the garden lighting in the form of an antique camera.

The Bradstone Panache Garden (Silver Medal)

The Decorated Bradstone Garden is a project sponsored by the manufacturer of stone paving materials Bradstone. The garden expresses vitality and energy. A curved stone wall, on top of which plants grow, gives dynamics. But the main vertical in the garden is a spiral sculpture made of colored plastic petals, the center and support of which is a thin trunk of a fallen forest tree. The design creates a swirl of color, playing in the sun's rays and in harmony with the vibrant gravilas, aquilegia and foxgloves growing at the foot.

Out of the Blue (Bronze Medal)

From the Blue is a semi-intensive rooftop garden shown on the ground, consisting of three embankments with a variety of drought-resistant plants and benches for relaxation. Biodiversity and sustainable development are the main design ideas for this garden. A zig-zag wall of bright blue polypropylene divides the embankments, providing shade to plants and providing alternative vantage points. Designer Alan Gardner puts it this way: "My design is simple with a twist. Blue is soothing, it's a Zen roof garden that's sustainable and perfect for relaxation."

Climate Calm Garden (Bronze Medal)

The Quiet Climate Garden is a response to the effects of climate change in South East England. Rainwater is collected from the roof for irrigation and channeled to different ends of the garden. The pattern of the channels resembles cracks in the ground that form during drought. Trimmed hedges and trees lend structure and color to this semi-wild garden. The steppe vegetation found in the eastern plains of England is resilient enough to withstand the high temperatures that may become more typical for Britain in the future.

Petra - Tranquility set in Stone (Bronze Medal)

"Petra - Calmness in Stone" is a project whose idea came from the ancient stone city of Petra in Jordan, carved into the rock. A quiet, peaceful garden in a forested area with multi-stemmed trees and meadow flowers has a romantic atmosphere. Rounded lines are present throughout the design. Three comfortable armchairs, handcrafted in vine and leather, are built into the stone railing. There is a small glass table on the vine balls. The recreation area descends by steps into a reservoir surrounded by coastal plants. An interesting detail is a piece of lawn hanging over the water.

Glamourlands: a Techno-Folly

"Glamorous Landscapes: Techno Frenzy" is a mobile, caricatured landscape placed in a metal bunker, reminiscent of a computer game. Appearing for the first time at the RHS Flower Show in Tutton Park last year and then in London's prestigious Berkeley Square, Glamordend will move into the old tunnel after Chelsea. Computerized chimeras covered with inlay pixels combined with real plants are used to create this hybrid landscape. By rejecting the conventions of landscape realism, the authors of the project wanted to show that in the era of digital technologies, a person perceives nature and beauty more and more in a sublimated form.

Pepa's Story (Silver Plated Medal)

"Pepa's Story" is the garden of a poor shepherd who built himself a dwelling in the ground 100 years ago in the Slovenian region of Karst. It draws attention to the rich biodiversity of karst dry meadows that were once untouched but are now disappearing. The main material used is limestone, from which the shepherd's hut and hearth were built. All elements are carved without tools, using pieces of hard stone. A cereal garden that mimics the natural environment.

Plant Explorer's Garden (Silver Plated Medal)

The Plant Explorer's Garden is an ornamental garden for a young botanist who spends much of his time on expeditions and collecting interesting plants. It was inspired by the observation of plants in their natural habitat around the world. The buildings include an open shed for planning expeditions and cataloging finds, as well as greenhouses for growing and propagating plants. The garden contains some of the explorer's favorite finds - exotic alocasia, tree fern, banana. The naturalistic planting style echoes the wild. Wildflowers took over part of the garden while the explorer was on his next journey.

Naturally Dry - a William Wordsworth-inspired garden (Silver Medal)

"Natural Dry Garden Inspired by William Wadsworth" recreates elements of the dry landscapes of Cumbria that once inspired the poet himself. The goal of the project is to show that even in dry conditions it is possible to have a beautiful garden without investing a lot of money. It is enough to choose drought-resistant plants and think about the efficient use of natural resources. Take advantage of old wells or collect rainwater, as in this landscape that is easy to reproduce at home.

The APCO Garden (Silver Medal)

Inspired by the villas of the Italian Renaissance, the APCO Garden is a space for contemplation and communication. Cut Italian stone borders and evergreen hedges define a quiet meeting place. Water, present in various forms, serves as a metaphor for conversational flow. Corner benches and a raised garden level enhance the feeling of privacy.

The Plankbridge Shepherd's Hut Garden (Silver Medal)

This tranquil wildflower garden is inspired by the beautiful Dorset countryside that writer Thomas Hardy immortalized in Away From the Madding Crowd. The centerpiece of the garden is a smaller modern version of the original Dorset shepherd's dwelling, akin to that featured in Hardy's novel. The hut is located in a flooded meadow, where a small stream flows gently, which once fed the now abandoned bed. This is a place to relax and find inspiration.

Herbert Smith Garden for WaterAid (Silver Medal)

This small kindergarten showcases the work WaterAid is doing to promote the efficient use of water resources. The trail starts at a water pump in an arid spot in the garden and runs through patches of grasses and flowers before leading to a corn plantation symbolizing sustainable agriculture. In the corner of the garden, in a simple hut with a thatched conical roof, there is a toilet, the contents of which are composted. This pump-to-hut walkway shows the environmental milestones of WaterAid.

Bee up front garden

The space in front of or to the side of the house is the best place to enjoy the sun, but is often used as a car park. This project shows that the design of a front garden can reflect the personality of the owners and their interest in gardening. The "Front Garden to Attract Bees" is a small T-shaped garden that wraps around the corner of the house, with sheared hedges, a paved area and a seating area. Various garden decorations and details, a small container reservoir give it a habitable look. A large number of plants have been selected that attract bees, which fill the garden with life and contribute to pollination of the plants. During the 60 years of Her Majesty the Queen's reign, the cultivation of fruits and vegetables was popular and here they are included in the design along with ornamental plants.

Miracle Gro'wers Learning Journey - Fruit & Vegetables

A Wonderful Journey of Learning Horticulture - Fruits and Vegetables - a garden created by students. They were provided with compost, containers of various sizes and seeds from more than 30 different crops in advance. The goal of the project is to show that everyone can grow vegetables and berries for themselves, even without a garden, in containers. Based on the photographs presented 3 weeks before the exhibition, the best plants for the design of this kindergarten were selected. To commemorate the Queen's jubilee, the roots were chosen in the colors of the British flag - red, white, blue. Little gardeners proudly handed out brochures and talked about their work.
