Thompson & Morgan is incredibly proud to have won another award for its Behind the Genes garden. Designed and created in partnership with Sparsholt College Hampshire, the garden was also awarded a gold medal this morning.
Chris Bird, Sparsholt College’s senior lecturer in horticulture received the Best in Class award this morning from Sir Nicholas Bacon, the President of the Royal Horticultural Society.
The award is for the garden in the Discovery area of the Great Pavilion which received the highest point score – 15 out of a possible maximum of 16.
Thompson & Morgan’s Lance Russell, himself an alumni of Sparsholt College said:
“I’m just so thrilled that the garden has been so well received by the RHS judges. All our hard work has paid off!”
Sonia works at Thompson & Morgan in the role of press and communications officer. She is a self-proclaimed ‘reluctant’ gardener and is generally amazed if anything flourishes in her garden. Sonia has a ‘hands off’ approach to gardening and believes that this helps to encourage bees, butterflies and other wildlife. (That’s her excuse anyway!)
