The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Webteam: July 2015
Celebrating last week at the RHS Flower Show at Tatton Park were Carol Siddorn and the 'Team'.
Not only did they receive Monty Don's approval and 'The Trowel of Honour', they were also featured in the first of his two visits to the Show which was broadcast by the BBC! (fame indeed).
'Garden Hideaways' is a feature of the 2015 Show and the 'Team' had been working hard all week to create a bespoke hideaway, promoting British grown cut flowers.
'The Cut Flower Growers' Shed' was designed and built by North West Area Members of 'Flowers From the Farm'. This is a national organisation which promotes British grown cut flowers; members ranging from florists who grow but a few flowers to growers who grow on several acreas but all of whom run their own businesses. The 'Team' responsible for the shed were precisely that — a fantastic 'Team'. They came from 'The Flower Farm, Burscough', 'Petal and Twig, Tarleton', 'Felicity Farm Flowers, Chorley' and 'Carol's Garden, Harthill, Tattenhall'. Also helping on the day was Jean Hopkins from 'Apple Tree Farm, Brown Knowl'.
All the flowers were home grown in Cheshire and Lancashire.
So what did the judges say — 'tasteful, elegant, a shed in which all the pastel colours worked well together and which the visitors loved .... especially the 'ladies' from Cheshire' — praise indeed!
Our congratulations to them all (pictured left to right in the photograph and with their prized trophy are Carol Siddorn, Elaine Parkinson and Jean Hopkins).
Now, you budding enthusiasts — the Tattenhall Garden Society Annual Show is looming (6 September at the Barbour Institute) — start preparing early and watch this space!
