Chelsea’s Great­est Gar­den 2013

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Thurs­day, 7.30pm, Life­Style Con­fes­sion time: I stood in front of Phillip John­son’s en­try at the Cen­te­nary Chelsea Flower Show in May and was un­der­whelmed. Ec­static that he was the first Aus­tralian to win the pres­ti­gious best in show award (out of 550 en­tries), but some­what dis­ap­pointed by what was an ad­mit­tedly clever dis­play of fa­mil­iar na­tive trees and grasses and some boul­ders. Give me a pretty gar­den with flow­ers any­time.
