Chelsea always feels as if the focus on the show gardens is in Main Avenue, but the main show gardens continue elsewhere and the Hope for Heroes garden in Royal Hospital Way was beautiful.

I┬álove the contrast between hard and soft landscaping here – the pillars really do hold the whole garden together.

Lupins feature heavily at Chelsea this year and in this garden, along with the foxgloves, they really stole the show.

Hope on the Horizon was designed by Matt Keightley, sponsored by David Brownlow Charitable Foundation and built by Farr & Roberts.
