CORKS are popping at the Marlow headquarters of a champagne company as they toast the biggest award in the world of horticulture.

Laurent Perrier UK, which is based on Chapel Street, scooped the ‘Best in Show’ garden prize at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

The company’s 16th entry impressed the judges with its tranquillity and simple geometric layout, created by Italian designer Luciano Giubbilei in his third outing for the champagne firm.

David Hesketh, managing director of Champagne Laurent-Perrier UK said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be presented with the ‘Best in Show’ award.

“Enormous credit must go to Luciano and his team for producing a truly spectacular display that perfectly encapsulates the essence of Laurent-Perrier’s heritage, passion for creativity and innovation.”

LP’s layered garden is intended to “stimulate the enjoyment of observation and contemplation” by visitors to the show, which last year celebrated its centenary.

The wooden sculpture is designed by highly acclaimed American artist Ursula von Rydingsvard.

And the entry wowed the judges with it contrasting stone and wooden finishes, flowing water and a colour spectrum of yellows, creams and whites among the green foliage.
