Suffolk designer Thomas Hoblyn has won silver gilt at the Chelsea Flower Show. His design for the Arthritis Research UK Garden had initially wanted to include red flowers, but the rain meant he couldn't get the colour he was after.
The garden's renaissance theme was suggested by the charity who wanted it to symbolise its new start as it heads towards its 75th anniversary.
Elodie Harper has been to the Chelsea Flower Show to meet some of the designers and gardeners from our region who are involved.
The 'Naturally Dry' garden at the Chelsea Flower show gives gardeners an idea on which plants to grow during the drought. Designed by Vicky Harris, it uses native drought resistant plants like ferns.
It's sponsored by Veolia Water, the company which serves parts of Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Essex. Visitors to the garden will get leaflets from the company with tips on how to conserve water in the garden.
