Iggy inspires Chelsea garden

A garden inspired by Iggy Pop has won a silver medal at the Chelsea Flower Show.

The singer, known as the Godfather of Punk, said he was delighted with the garden created by The Children’s Society.

The design, named after the his hit song Lust for Life, was runner up in the Best Chic Garden category, reports the Mirror.

Iggy said: “It’s awesome the Lust for Life garden won a silver medal. It’s great to know my music reaches out to so many and inspires.

“I’m honoured The Children’s Society’s garden is inspired by my music and wholeheartedly support the work they do – they rock.”

The garden features an arc of water which moves in rhythmic bursts to the beat of Lust For Life.

Richard Johnson at the charity said: “We are delighted that our first ever entry into Chelsea has scooped a silver medal.”

The garden will later be dismantled and rebuilt within one of the charity’s projects for disadvantaged children.
