Thompson & Morgan and Sparsholt College Hampshire have just announced a gold medal win at RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
Their joint creation, the Behind the Genes garden, was this morning awarded a gold medal in the Discovery area of the Great Pavilion.
Yesterday, Thompson & Morgan’s Agapanthus ‘Fireworks’ took third place in the prestigious Plant of the Year competition.
Peter Freeman, T&M’s new product development manager said:
“We’re completely over the moon! To have been so highly recognised by the RHS is a huge achievement”.
Sparsholt College’s Chris Bird, senior lecturer in horticulture, commented:
“It’s such an honour to have won gold in the Great Pavilion. The students who have worked tirelessly on this garden over the months are totally deserving of this award. I’m thrilled to say that this is the ninth gold that we’ve won for the college”.
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!)
