A country estate will be the inspiration of an exhibition at an internationally–renowned flower show next year.

Champagne Laurent-Perrier will be returning to the 2015 RHS Chelsea Flower Show under the artistic direction of award–winning designer Dan Pearson.

Taking the prominent ‘triangle’ position, which can be viewed from all three sides, Dan has created a representation of a small part of the 105–acre Chatsworth Garden.

In line with his passion for naturalism and the wilder side of gardening, the exhibit is inspired by Chatsworth’s ornamental trout stream and Paxton’s rockery.

Planting reflects the lightness, freshness and delicacy of the 200–year old family owned champagne house, and the design aims to inspire many show guests to visit the Chatsworth Garden.

Due to launch in spring 2016, Pearson’s work can be viewed at Chatsworth itself as part of a regeneration project of the trout stream area.

Dan Pearson returns to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show following an 11–year absence, having previously designed five gardens at the event.

He said: “The collaboration between historic Chatsworth and long time RHS Chelsea Flower Show exhibitors Laurent-Perrier is a really exciting proposition for the 2015 show, and something that I really wanted to join. To recreate part of such an extraordinary estate, here in London, is a truly unique opportunity.”
