A restaurant in South Kensington is giving diners the alfresco experience – indoors.

In celebration of the recent Chelsea Flower Show, Daphne’s launched a competition to foster emerging talent in the gardening world.

Working in collaboration with the English Gardening School, it asked graduate designers to create a stunning, original indoor garden in the midst of the restaurant.

The winning submission was a joint collaboration by Manoj Malde and Amy Roberts.

Both designers began their careers in the fashion world but have now turned their creativity to gardening.

The specially designed garden will be in situ until the end of the week.
