RHS Young Designer and Best Garden awards announced at Tatton Park
The opening day of RHS Flower Show Tatton Park saw the announcement of the winners of the prestigious RHS Young Designer and Best Garden award
RHS Flower Show Tatton Park opened today with the announcement of the winners of this year's awards.
The RHS Young Designer award was picked up by designer Will Scholey, who won with his Working From Home Garden. The 26 year-old created the space following the trend for home working during the pandemic.
Elsewhere the Best Garden award was given to the Cotton Traders Greener Future Garden, designed by Lynn Cordall from Manchester.
The designer retrained after working in fashion, and her garden was a city centre imagined space for a retiring couple who enjoy the countryside. The planting was for wildlife, and features stinging nettles, sustainable water drainage solutions to help with water run-off.
The garden also won Best Construction for Garden.
The Best Greener Community Border went to Kenny Raybould, for Grown That Way: Green for Me, which celebrates alternatives to lawn and celebrates the wonders of green foliage plants.
Two gold medals were given to Pip Probert's Why Commute Tatton Garden and Lynn Cordall again.
The floral marquee saw the Cheshire Bonsai Society win the Best Exhibit and the Best Plant Village Exhibit was taken by WS Warmenhoven.
