David Green, the criminal barrister at 18 Red Lion Court responsible for the garden in its front courtyard, has scooped the annual Miller Award for the best new floral feature in the City.

The trophy, awarded by the City of London corporation and the Worshipful Company of Gardeners, will be presented by the Mayor of London at the Mansion House in September.

Green volunteered to transform the courtyard when the set moved from 5 King's Bench Walk to 18 Red Lion Court last year. He said: “The garden is a place for rest, relaxation, renewal and chambers drinks.”
