Huge congratulations to our garden designer, Karen Blight, and her team of students at Merrist Wood college who won a gold medal for the garden they designed and created at the Gardener's world live show in Beaulieu last month!
Just to create a garden at a show is achievement enough, but to win a gold medal is a fantastic result as well as a huge boost to the students in their studies and for their future aspirations. Well done Karen and the team!!
Here is a TV presenter Adam Frost enjoying the Merrist Wood garden! Adam knows a thing or two about Gold Medal-winning gardens, having won seven Gold Medals at Chelsea!
We are so grateful to Karen for giving so generously of her time, her expertise and her enthusiasm in creating and supporting the design of our garden.
Karen also ran a very successful fund raising Christmas Wreath-making workshop last year and we are delighted that she is going to run a further workshop in July. This will be for making flower arrangements for special occasions, more details to follow very soon so watch out for that and keep the date free - it will be held on Saturday 8th July in the morning.
