RHS Chelsea Flower Show - Viking Cruises Mekong Garden - ARTISAN GARDENS - Gold medal winner - Best Artisan Garden

The Garden has been designed by Sarah Eberle, supported by Fiona Campbell and Nick Weaver and is inspired by the floating gardens in the silk-weaving regions of Cambodia and the Mekong River. The 7 x 5m (23 x 16½ft) garden is entirely water with a small deck leading to a 'floating' lounger styled on a traditional fishing boat. Overhead a cantilevered parasol inspired by traditional fishing nets and silk weaving provides shade. The floating beds follow the style of the region and contain contain an eclectic mixture of fruit and vegetables such as spinach, kale, aubergine, gourds and okra, along with flowers for cutting within a waterside matrix
