Wedgwood Garden scoops three awards

The Wedgwood Garden at RHS Chatsworth Flower Show (June 5-9) has been awarded three highly coveted accolades with an inaugural show garden by emerging designer and RHS Ambassador, Jamie Butterworth. The winning design scooped an RHS Gold Medal, Best in Show and the Best Construction Award.

Building on the success of the Silver Gilt winning garden at RHS Chelsea Flower Show, this second show garden of the 2019 season continues to mark the 260th anniversary of Wedgwood. Jamie’s design has been inspired by RHS founder John Wedgwood’s vision of using the power of horticulture and plants to unite and connect communities. Christian Bachler, Wedgwood senior vice president, said: “It is an honour to receive three esteemed awards in our 260th anniversary year.

This accolade is particularly significant as Jamie’s garden celebrates the legacy of John Wedgwood, the founder of the RHS.”

In 1804 John Wedgwood, son of Wedgwood founder Josiah, established what was to become the Royal Horticultural Society. He had a vision of bringing gardening to everyone, to improve people’s lives through horticulture and create a sense of community; a passion that first-time designer Jamie Butterworth shares, both as an RHS Ambassador and as a horticulturist.

Jamie has drawn inspiration from John Wedgwood’s personal garden and handpicked many plants from his original plant journal, such as sweet peas, roses, herbs and fruit trees.
