(9:55 a.m. BST) -- Viking Cruises has taken another gold medal at the prestigious RHS Chelsea Flower Show for its The Art of Viking garden, designed by Paul Hervey-Brookes.
This is Viking's seventh year sponsoring a garden at the show and its third year working with Paul Hervey-Brookes. This is also the partnership's third consecutive gold medal.
Inspiration for this year's garden was drawn from artwork featured onboard Viking Orion -- one of the line's six ocean-going ships -- including works by Norwegian impressionist Jakob Weidemann and ceramist Anette Krogstad.
The Art of Viking features a layered wetland habitat, traditional Scandinavian plants, including Salix, Angelica and Symphytum, and a centrepiece sculpture designed by Paul.
Wendy Atkin-Smith, managing director of Viking Cruises UK, said: "We are thrilled to have achieved yet another gold medal-winning garden. Viking strives for excellence in everything we do and we know how close gardening is to the heart of all our guests so this recognition means a lot to us.
"As well as water we chose art as the main theme of the design this year as it weaves together two aspects of Viking’s heritage – a sense of discovery through travel and art, and an appreciation for nature which is deeply ingrained in Scandinavian culture."
The Art of Viking garden is open to visitors at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show from until May 25 on plot RHW/285.
