It was a double celebration at Chelsea 2012 for designer Cleve West - winner of Best Show Garden for the second successive year with Brewin Dolphin.

And Diarmuid Gavin set the tongues wagging again with his giant pyramid - the Westland Magical Garden won the award for most creative show garden and certainly looked the part on Press Day with Chelsea pensioners forming a guard of honour ringing each of the pyramid's seven terraces.

Meanwhile TV gardener Joe Swift celebrated gold with his first show garden, the Homebase Teenage Cancer Trust garden.

Best Artisan Garden was Ishihara Kazuyuki's gorgeously tranquil Satoyama Life and heading up the newly-created Fresh Garden category was Easigrass' Green with… Most Creative Fresh garden was Humko Bled's The Soft Machine.
