Thought I’d catch you up on the results from the Gardening World Cup in Japan. A blogger for The Guardian (UK) newspaper reckons it’s a tougher proposition than Chelsea – however, the two New Zealand designers there this year, Bayley LuuTomes (Home Garden) and Xanthe White (Show Garden), both won silver medals.
Read about Bayley, who will be at Ellerslie next year, and his garden here.
Leon Kluge of South Africa won Gold in the Home Garden section – see photos of his garden here.
Leon has also written about the whole experience and the nice relationships that develop between designers. Read that pieces (with lots of photos) here.
