Irish garden designer Paul Martin was awarded gold for his show garden, “The Path of Life”, in the Landscape and Fantasy Gardens category at the Singapore Garden Festival.

The Singapore Garden Festival is invite only with the selected designers having must won a gold medal in one of the world’s top three shows, Chelsea, Singapore, and Philadelphia within the previous 2 years.

Speaking about his time at the Singapore Garden Festival Paul Martin said: “In our category of Show Gardens, same as Chelsea, there were only 3 [of us] from Europe: Andy Sturgeon and Kate Gould, both Chelsea Gold medallists, the rest were from Malaysia, Japan, Singapore, Australia. Competition was stiff and unlike Chelsea with 21 days to build, here you only get 10, plus high humidity and 34ºC — it is intense.”

Both Martin and Sturgeon won gold, making them the only two Europeans ever to win twice at the show.

The Festival

The Singapore Garden Festival (SGF) is a series of flower and horticultural shows comprising the anchor Festival and two complementary events – the SGF Orchid Show and SGF Horticulture Show.

The three shows give local and international visitors more opportunities to appreciate tropical horticulture and floral artistry every year.

The mainstay SGF is amongst the top flower and garden shows on the international calendar. It is the first show to bring together top international award-winning landscape and garden designers, florists and horticulturists from around the world who are invited to the festival to work alongside Singapore’s own talented horticulturists.

Singapore’s geographic location makes the festival an ideal platform to showcase horticultural and gardening products and services from the northern and southern hemispheres, as well as from Asia and New World nations.

In 2014, SGF became the first festival in Asia to clinch the prestigious International Garden Tourism – Achievement of The Year Award, awarded by the Canadian Garden Tourism Council as a part of the biennial Garden Tourism Conference.
