1 Min Read

Cotswold designers and growers have got top awards at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show – and been given royal approval.

Family herb nursery The Kitchen Garden Plant Centre picked up gold for the second year running. There was silver-gilt for Green JJam Nurseries, and silver for Derry Watkins of Special Plants. Designer Jamie Langlands got five stars, the top award, for his design for sculptor David Harber’s trade stand.

And a Gloucestershire gardener helped the National Garden Scheme win a gold medal by contributing plants for the charity’s garden. Neil Jones, who runs The Kitchen Garden Plant Centre with his wife Niamh, said he was overwhelmed by the result.

‘It wasn’t what I was expecting this morning.’It’s the Newent nursery’s third time at Chelsea and they are already making plans for next year.
