A GARDEN inspired by a courtyard at a National Trust property won a Silver Gilt at The Chelsea Flower Show.

West Green House, near Hartley Wintney, was represented at the flower show for the first time with an artisan garden titled The Topiarist Garden.

Designed by Marylyn Abbott, owner of West Green House, the garden took its inspiration from the courtyard, where the topiary is clipped into flamboyant shapes.
