An Irish landscape architect has taken home a prestigious award at the 2023 Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show presented by Scotts Osmocote.
Peter Donegan’s “Bam Stone Garden” won him a gold medal at the show. His winning design was one of only five to receive the Gold Show Garden Award at the 2023 event which ran from 29 March to 2 April.
The Dublin-based garden designer was the first ever Irish landscape architect to be invited and accepted to design a show garden for Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show 2023, and has now made history as the first to win a medal.
Australia’s most breathtaking horticultural designs were crowned at the show. Now in its 26th year, the awards recognise some of the best garden and floral experts and their enchanting works.
