The awards for the show gardens have been announced, and it’s little surprise that the two hot favourites - Andy Sturgeon’s garden for The Telegraph and Cleve West’s naturalistic garden for the show’s sponsors, M & G, have both got Gold.

Sturgeon has achieved the highest accolade of Best In Show for his geologically-inspired garden.

There are surprisingly few Gold awards this year, just six.

The remaining four have been awarded to Jo Thompson’s The Chelsea Barracks Garden, which features a fine collection of antique French roses, James Basson’s drought-tolerant Provencal garden for L’Occitane, Chris Beardshaw’s plant-rich Morgan Stanley Garden for Great Ormond Street Hospital, where it will be later sited, and Paul Martin for Vestra Wealth’s Garden of Mindful Living, a contemporary garden designed to be a quiet, calm space.
