Come and check it out next year!
Multiple gold award-winning Singapore garden designer Peter Cheok recreated his Singapore Garden Festival Best of Show and Gold Award winning garden Seeking Shangri-La a fantasy garden which was a real show stopper. It had that special wow factor – theatrical and at the same time horticulturally challenging.
Only 28 years old, Peter has quickly established himself as a leading garden designer in Asia and his reputation is beginning to spread internationally. He is the youngest of three brothers who started Far East Flora, Singapore’s leading integrated floriculture company. The company combines a retail nursery, wholesale flower centre, landscaping and garden care.
Peter has a real talent for creating true fantasy gardens which portray very serious environmental messages.
Seeking Shangri-La highlights the issues of global warming and climate change, the theme for the garden coming from the fictional place of Shangri-La created by British author James Hilton in the 1933 novel Lost Horizon.
The garden illustrates the dramatic impact global warming can have on the environment and how nature will need to adapt to climate change. It used an artistic combination of lighting and special effects to create a city submerged underwater, beneath a retreating glacier. It was an exhibit not to be missed.
Peter has received numerous international accolades for his work, including winning the Singapore Garden Festival’s Best of Show and Gold Awards for the last two consecutive shows.
