River cruise line creates Scandinavian-inspired garden as the new sponsor of the world's largest annual flower show.
The RHS has announced that leading river cruise line, Viking Cruises, is headline sponsor of RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. The partnership has developed over the last four years with Viking Cruises having a presence at both the RHS Chelsea and RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Shows.
Return of the Water Garden category- inspired by the new partnership, the 2016 show features the return of the popular Water Garden category after an eight-year absence. At this year’s show three gardens will be based on a water theme, including a debut design at the show by Viking Cruises.
Inspired by the wild, natural beauty and their heritage, The Viking Cruises Scandinavian Garden beckons you across the water, to take a closer look. A rowing boat rests on a pebble beach where large boulders have been placed, as if left by a retreating glacier. A gravel path leads to the door of a humble house which nestles into an earth mound covered by meadow grass sparsely colonised with wildflowers. Nature is ever present in the form of sedges, ferns and grasses, while native trees and shrubs provide the backdrop. The garden evokes a traditional Scandinavian way of life where comfort and beauty is drawn from the simplest things.
