Commenting on the award Richard said: “Wow! You voted and we won! A huge thank you to everyone who voted. And to the thousands of people who came to see the garden. We’ve talked about everything from hawthorns and wildlife to who you’d share our Alfred Lord Tennyson quote with: "If I had a flower for every time I thought of you."

"This award is even more special because it helps to raise awareness of, and support for, Perennial, the charity supporting everyone working with plants, trees, flowers and grass."

Paul Newman, Perennial's chief executive said: "To be recognised by 'The People' as their favourite garden at Chelsea 2022 is overwhelming. Richard Miers' extraordinary design for the Perennial Garden 'With Love' has generated such a positive response from everyone who has seen it. We are simply thrilled with how effectively it has shared our message of love and support for everyone in the industry."
