Designed by Kamilla Bin Zaal, the first arab woman to design a garden at the Chelsea Flower Show has drawn from Islamic principles to create a garden of sanctuary. The Beauty of Islam is designed to show visitors the relationship between humans and the earth. Jasmine, rosemary and papyrus represent the spread of Islam and Arab culture.

This breathtaking show garden is a result of the partnering of Laurent-Perrier and Chatsworth. The garden represents a small part of the 105 acre Chatsworth Garden and is in line with the wilder side of gardening.

With 40 000 hand-cut slate as suspended platforms, this garden's unique design is one not to miss. The underground stream is illuminated by sunlight through a hole in the slate above it. It is designed to reflect Brewin Dolphin's forward-thinking in business.

Talking of horticulture, we are excited to announce that we will be opening the doors of our grounds to green-fingered friends as part of Open Garden Squares Weekend 13 - 14 June 2015 - watch this space for more information.
