Ulf Nordfjell has won the Best Show garden award at the Chelsea Flower Show 2009!

The Daily Telegraph garden designed by Swedish landscape architect Ulf Nordfjell has won the Best Show garden award at the Chelsea Flower Show 2009.

It is the second time Ulf Nordfjell has won at the Chelsea Flower Show following his gold medal-winning debut appearance in 2007 with his garden "A Tribute to Linnaeus''.

With The Daily Telegraph garden Ulf Nordfjell aims to take the traditional cottage garden into the 21st century. Ulf said, "This year, I wanted to honour British traditions. I thought it would be interesting to mix your heritage of cottage gardening with Scandinavian modernism, and to flirt with the English style."

Ulf Nordfjell’s popular book 12 Gardens was published in a revised edition last year. This book includes his fantastic garden honouring Linnaeus!
The English garden photographer Jerry Harpur’s pictures convey the changes of the seasons and represent the gardens with both general views and detail.
