Chelsea Flower Show – ‘The Pearlfisher Garden’ wins Gold Medal Award

We are very proud to be part of the world’s most prestigious flower show this year. We have installed a series of very large cylindrical aquariums for the Gold Medal awarded “The Pearlfisher Garden” by Karen Welman and John Warland at the 2018 Chelsea flower show. The Garden is designed to celebrate the beauty of underwater gardens of our great oceans and highlights the irrevocable impact of plastic waste on our ecosystems.

The Garden has been planted with various cacti, succulents and tillandsia to resemble an underwater coral world. The sculptures and walls within the garden have all been made from recycled plastic.

Our Aquariums house many colourful African Cichlids and plant life, each tank is maintained with a high technological eco friendly biofiltration system and is carefully monitored and maintained by our Aquatic Design Centre team.

RHS Chelsea Flower Show The Pearlfisher Garden

25 years ago, our three founding partners named Pearlfisher after the Japanese Ama- globally-respected Japanese women who free-dive to retrieve precious pearls from the seabed. These divers showcase how humans and nature can respectfully co-exist, but their skill is at risk of extinction due to the last of the original Ama ageing, with no new generations willing to take over, and the water of our oceans unhealthy to swim in due to the effects of humanity.” Pearlfisher Group: (2018)

The team who have designed and curated the garden include RHS multi-gold and silver medal award- winner, John Warland; Pearlfisher’s Creative Partner and Chief Creative Officer, Karen Welman; and world-renowned underwater sculptor, Jason deCaires Taylor.
