We are thrilled that 3 of our English Gardening School graduates obtained medals. Manoj Malde’s Fresh garden for Inland Homes: Beneath a Mexican Sky collected a Silver-Gilt.  Ruth Willmott’s design for Breast Cancer Now Garden: Through the Microscope won Silver-Gilt and the People’s choice award for Best Fresh Garden. Fiona Cadwallader won Silver for The Poetry Lover’s Garden in the Artisan category.

All three gardens were constructed to a particularly high standard and the planting was exemplary.

In addition, Kate Gould who won Best Fresh Garden and a Gold for City Living, will present the diplomas to our One Year Good Gardening students graduating in July.

I was judging in both the Fresh & the Artisan categories at this year’s show.  In addition I was judging Belgravia in Bloom which sees local businesses, residents, retailers and restaurants getting involved with floral displays.  This year’s exhibitors had risen to a very high standard.
