Large Gold and 'Best Hardy Plant Stand' in Show!
Thursday 16 Aug 2012
Since being allocated a space at the flower show with 7 days notice we got awarded a large gold medal and also best hardy plant stand in show. The stand theme was hardy Summer flowering perennials and the judges said 'It does what it says on the tin, theyre all hardy and they are in top condition!'. The challenge trophy was introdeced in late 1950's and it has been over 20 years since the nursery won this accolade so its great to bring it home once again!The focuss plant on the display is Monarda, being commonly known as Bergamot theyre great for attracting bees into the garden and come in a soft range of colours from pinks to white and reds to purples. Other plants include Achilleas, our renowned Crocosmias and other hardy plants.
The show is on the 16th - 19th of August, the weather forecast maybe patchy but there is plenty to see and do inside and whilst the sun is shining browse the stands and gardens outside.
If your coming to the show pop along to our stand as we would love to meet you, and its also an ideal time to pop into the nursery to see how the building of our new tea room is coming along!
