The Viking Cruises Garden of Inspiration

By garden designer Sarah Eberle. Viking Cruises is delighted to be partnering with Garden Designer Sarah Eberle again this year to create a travel-inspired garden for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2017.

The Viking Cruises Garden of Inspiration will reflect the colours, art and culture of Barcelona, a source of inspiration for Sarah following her previous travel experiences and also a Viking Cruises destination.

The Viking Cruises Garden of Inspiration will combine colourful mosaics, a fluid ‘folded’ marble bench and striking metal sculptures of Agave plants, reminiscent of the work of Barcelona’s most famous architect, Antoni Gaudi, with a vivid mix of blooms in flaming oranges, scarlets and yellows, deep lavender blues and pale lilacs.

For the past four years Viking Cruises has entered a garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show to reflect the colourful voyages of discovery guests can enjoy onboard their ships.
