Great news! The fab Chilstone Garden was awarded a Silver Medal at the World's greatest flower show. The medal is yet another award for the talented designer Heather Appleton and is pretty amazing for her first attempt at this great show. All of the Chelsea gardens are designed by top designers, so it is great to get an award as well - its like the olympics, just being there is good.
The garden attracted a lot of attention from the broadcast media and there has been a lot of coverage on the BBC and international channels. Crowds have been teeming around the site and we have had newspaper coverage as well - when they have not been writing about Diarmuid Gavin that is!
The whole garden looked spectacular and we saw lots of celebrities at the Press Day including Ringo Starr. We asked Ringo if we could photograph him but he declined saying that "he had never been a fan of the Stones".
Made up the last bit.
