The team from Burncoose Nurseries at Gwennap, Cornwall has been no stranger to Chelsea success.Since 1984 it has amassed 27 prestigious gold medals and has only missed one show, in 2021, due to Covid-19. Finishing touches to the 2024 garden would be made right up to the last minute.

Burncoose was officially opened in March 1984, with six employees, a single phone line and a caravan for an office.Now the business said it employed more than 40 people and its website gets more than 1.5 million hits a year.
