The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Carol's Garden: September 2015
We have already featured Carol Siddorn's summer of success at Tatton Park RHS when she and the team were not only awarded Monty's 'Trowel of Honour' but were also featured on the BBC.
Well ... Carol Siddorn's summer of success just continues ...
Carol was delighted to be awarded 2nd Prize in the hotly contested 'Floral Art' section of the 2015 Southport Flower Show, competing with entires from all over the North West. The Southport Flower Show, held at Victoria Park in Southport, is the largest independent flower show in the United Kingdom.
The class was for an 'English Country Garden Bridal Bouquet' which is featured.
All of the flowers that Carol used were grown by her in Harthill.
Carol was also asked to host talks on Flower Growing in the British Flowers' Marquee, with Flower arranging demonstrations by Jonathan Moseley of the BBC Big Allotment Challenge (using Carol's home grown flowers)!!
