Chelsea Flower Show prizes for Highland Boundary partners

BOTH of the gardens supported by Perthshire drinks maker Highland Boundary have won prizes at this week’s Chelsea Flower Show.

“A Rewilding Britain Landscape”, designed by Adam Hunt and Lulu Urquhart, won the “Best in Show” prize and a gold medal.

“The Still Garden”, created by Scottish-born Jane Porter and inspired by the tradition of distilling, also won a gold medal and a “Best in Class” prize for balcony and container gardens.

Marian Bruce, Highland Boundary’s founder and distiller, said: “We are delighted that both of the gardens we have supported have been recognised so deservedly at the Chelsea Flower Show.

“We all share a love of nature’s spirit, the importance of healthy biodiversity and landscapes, and we’ve loved collaborating with them and letting people ‘taste’ the gardens.”

Highland Boundary created two gin cocktails that were served at the Chelsea Flower Show using ingredients that were on display in the two award-winning gardens.

“Still Garden Glee” featured Scots pine and rowan.

“Wild Landscape” included one of the beaver’s favourite trees – the birch – along with hawthorn and honeysuckle syrups and garnished with sweet woodruff, an aromatic woodland flower.
