The Laurent-Perrier Garden by Dan Pearson - Best in Show 2015

Champagne Laurent-Perrier is delighted to be returning to the 2015 RHS Chelsea Flower Show, under the artistic direction of award-winning designer Dan Pearson.

For the 2015 show, institutions Laurent-Perrier and Chatsworth have come together to create a breath-taking show garden, marking Chatsworth’s debut at Chelsea.  With a shared heritage in gardens and nature, and family dwellings in beautiful grounds, the garden promises to be an awe-inspiring experience for visitors.

The Laurent-Perrier Garden

Taking the prominent ‘triangle’ position, which can be viewed from all three sides, Pearson has created a beautiful representation of a small – less trodden - part of the105 acre Chatsworth Garden.  In line with Pearson’s passion for naturalism and the wilder side of gardening, the exhibit is inspired by Chatsworth’s ornamental Trout Stream and Paxton’s rockery.

Planting reflects the lightness, freshness and delicacy of the 200-year old family owned Champagne House, and the design will inspire many show guests to visit the Chatsworth Garden.  Due to launch in spring 2016, Pearson’s work can be viewed at Chatsworth itself as part of a regeneration project of the Trout Stream area.

Garden details
Contained only on its north side by the dramatic backdrop of a dry stone boulder wall, the  garden depicts an ornamental woodland animated by a naturalistic water feature gracefully winding from its elevated source, beneath a dramatic rock stack, to a still moon gazing pool.  Stepping stones and a raised wooded boardwalk to the east of the garden, provide a path for garden guests.        

Two glades are fringed with a variety of different plant combinations, all chosen to thrive in acid woodland and partial shade, and displaying a refreshing spectrum of green, white and yellow punctuated with accents of stronger colours.  Flowering shrubs and small trees create an ornamental counterpoint to native trees. A number of key plants and trees have been sourced from Chatsworth and selected for their distinctiveness, including Azalea and

Rhododendrons that naturally will be in bloom at Chatsworth as well as Chelsea in May. Seedling oaks highlight regeneration and their ecological value and the larger trees and shrubs give the garden a sense of maturity.
