Bribery and corruption

Posted by Jean Vernon on 23 Jul 2008 at 09:54 AM

Chris Beardshaw, judge and garden designer was promoting Cheshire's Year of Gardens 08 at the show yesterday morning.
Using bribery and corruption, (OK it was Pimms and Canapés - a rare, rare treat for the members of the gardening press you understand) the Press learned that Cheshire is home to the greatest number of gardens in England. The garden that he has designed includes some fantastic horticultural gems, a deep herbaceous border and some classic views.
He'd been out judging already and was just the chap to ask about this years' Tatton Park Flower Show.



 "The diversity of gardens here at Tatton Park Flower Show is unprecedented in quality and diversity. It's had a wonderful atmosphere through the build up and there is great camaraderie between all of the show garden teams. Whenever we are having a crisis there is always a shoulder to cry on. That's what you get at Tatton; it's a wonderful arena of garden design for people to practice at home. Some of the detail and design thoughts are just great. Usually when you come to a show there is a theme, but at this show there is no theme this year, there's everything here."

Last night, the Cheshire's Year of Gardens 08 Show Garden was awarded a Gold Medal and the prestigious Best in Show Award for the Show Garden Category.
