A  garden which has brought the Peter Rabbit illustrations to life has won a gold award at this week’s Chelsea Flower Show.

The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction at Bowness took the accolade for creating a herb garden based on the well-known drawings, complete with radish patch, vegetable garden and Peter himself hiding in a watering can.

The entry was the idea of Richard Lucas, garden designer at the Bowness attraction, who worked with Staffordshire plant nursery, Hooks Green Herbs, to create the display for the Grand Pavilion.

The garden features culinary and medicinal herbs, vegetables, wild flowers and some cottage garden favourites too, along with Mr McGregor’s greenhouse as well as walls that replicate the Lake District slate from the original illustrations.
