The People's Choice Garden of the Decade has been announced, with Mark Gregory's 2018 Welcome to Yorkshire Chelsea Garden crowned the winner.
The competition ran this year as part of Virtual RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Two of Mark's gardens were in the top ten, all of which were voted for by the public.
The Welcome to Yorkshire garden was a representation of the Yorkshire Dales and featured a meadow, woodland edge, native trees and a cottage garden.
Mark has built 99 show gardens at RHS Chelsea Flower Show since 1988. He said: "Not being there this year has been more than a little surreal but to win Garden of the Decade means the world. Chelsea is always a team effort and this award is for everyone involved, I’m so proud to have been a part of it and I hope this garden and the 2019 Welcome to Yorkshire garden will inspire people to visit the home county of which I’m so proud.”
Other gardens on the shortlist included the 2017 Morgan Stanley Garden designed by Chris Beardshaw, 2016's God's Own County, A Garden for Yorkshire designed by Matthew Wilson, 2015's Sentebale - Hope in Vulnerability designed by Matthew Keightley, 2014's Help for Heroes 'Hope on the Horizon' designed by Matthew Keightley, the 2013 Arthritis UK Garden designed by Chris Beardshaw, Tom Hoblyn's 2012 Arthritis Research UK Garden, the 2011 Irish Sky Garden designed by Diarmuid Gavin and the M&G Garden designed by Roger Platts.
