Dan Pearson: The Chatsworth Garden at Chelsea Flower Show 21/05/15
Join Dan Pearson at the Garden Museum for an exclusive insight into the making of a Chelsea Flower Show Garden.
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.
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 Derbyshire 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.
