John Tan and Raymond Toh of
Malaysia SINGAPORE took top honors in the Show Garden Division yesterday winning both the Gold and Best of Show awards. They ecstatically accepted their awards in front of the Huis Ten Bosch Palace at an elaborately staged event complete with orchestral fanfares much like the Oscars.
Their exhibit, “Timeless Tropical – Peace with Nature”, featured a rusted metal pathway and fence leading to a petal-like seating pavilion within lush sweeps of orchids, peace lilies and sansiveria.
Leon Kluge of South Africa took the Gold in the Home Garden Division for “Breaking Free”. He’s shown here sharing the honor with his construction foreman and family.
The red carpet night was filled with black tuxes, gorgeous kimonos and exquisitely served delicacies .
