David Domoney Pirahna Garden Chelsea Flower Show

At the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2009, I created an Underwater Garden. It featured five tanks filled with tropical plants from all over the world. One of them was based on the Amazon river in South America, the largest river in the world and home, of course, to piranhas!

Other tanks included African and Asian plants and fish!

But the highlight of my Chelsea display was the piranhas! Did you know a pack of them can rip the flesh from a full-sized cow in two and a half minutes! Needless to say, HM the Queen loved the garden! Who wouldn’t?
