I am thrilled to finally be able to share some pictures of my finished RHS Cardiff Flower Show garden for Victoria Park Mazda entitled “A Front Garden” I’m thrilled to tell you that we were awarded a Bronze medal.

After all the hard work and VERY long days I felt a little disappointed yesterday that we didn’t get a better medal, but the public’s response to the garden and bright vibrant planting has been absolutely brilliant and today I have a renewed energy because I’ve created a garden that people can relate to and that they can take inspiration from.

The whole experience of designing and building a show garden has taught me loads – it’s been challenging, uplifting, exhausting, stressful (at times) and rewarding all rolled into one.  I’ve enjoyed almost every minute!

So I’ll leave you with some more images of the garden and hope that the vibrant spring planting makes you smile too…

You may have noticed that I’ve been absent for a couple of weeks.  I haven’t been around much as we were in France for a few days (internet is always hopeless there!) and I’ve also been out and about sorting things out for my show garden with Victoria Park Mazda at Cardiff in April.  So hope you haven’t been having withdrawal symptoms…I’m sure you got by!

We’ve been in Wales for a week now and I can’t tell you how wonderful it is to wake up to the view over the Welsh Hills.  It never seems to look the same – we’re had all weather’s thrown at us including snow and hail, but we haven’t looked back once. Read more
