Janice has won three Awards at the Harrogate Flower Show. She was planning her next show garden for Spring 2020 but the Harrogate Spring Flower Show was cancelled due to Coronavirus.
Ironically, it was called the "Staycation Garden" !
We will be back to do a garden another year (fingers crossed).
Shades of Autumn
Gold Award for Show Border
This border was alive with the colours of Autumn!
Just because the weather is getting cooler, you don’t have to abandon your beds. Use evergreens and plants with great stem colour to keep them looking good throughout winter and into Spring.
Underplanting with bulbs will also give you lots of spring interest.
Take some Thyme
Gold Award for Small Show Garden
This is a garden which provides a green refuge in an urban environment.
It was about making time for yourself, whether it is growing herbs for cooking, doing crafts, gardening, or just sitting and reading…
What do you have time for?
Have a look at the Gallery to see what happened to this garden after the show!
My Favourite Kind of Garden – What’s Yours?
Silver Award for Show Garden
This garden had a simple design which could be recreated by an interested gardener.
Many gardens need to be so many things to a family.
This cottage-style garden has a little bit of space for everyone, including a lawn, patio, potting (or BBQ) bench, and borders full of colour.
