Garden scoops silver on Chelsea debut
The National Botanic Garden of Wales’ ‘Get Well Soon’ artisan garden has won a Silver medal at the 100th RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
Director, Dr Rosie Plummer said: “We are absolutely thrilled at getting a medal with our first ever Chelsea garden. We are a young garden, and a small team on a tight budget, so this is a major achievement first time out.”
Dr Plummer paid a special tribute to designers Maggie Hughes and Kati Crome who have worked tirelessly to produce a truly stunning garden: “Maggie and Kati have done such a fantastic job. We hope they are as proud and pleased as we are. We have had such a phenomenal reaction from the people here at the show – it really is amazing.”
Dr Plummer also thanked the sponsors of the ‘Get Well Soon’ garden: Penn Pharma, from Tredegar; the South West Wales Tourism Partnership; and Growing the Future; and everyone else who contributed to the success, especially the team who laboured long and hard in the 10-day ‘build’ in the run-up to the show.
The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is on until Saturday May 25th.
