Welcome to the 2023 season and goodbye to the 2022 year.
We did exceedingly well with four more RHS Gold medals bringing our total to sixty
nine. Our Chelsea total is now 10 golds out of 12 appearances. We also had
three more top medals at Gardeners’ World, Chorley and Southport.
We cut down to seven shows last year and this year another cut to four. They
will be Malvern Spring, Chelsea, Gardeners’ World and Malvern Autumn.
Those very sharp frosts at the beginning of December were devastating, a lot
of plants succumbed to that period of low temperatures.
Chelsea was good for us again. Vicki had to make our outfits this time and
she even had to go out and buy a sewing machine as she hadn’t done any
sewing since leaving school, which was a very long time ago. She was over
the moon when she met Patrick Grant, a judge on the BBC programme “The
Great British Sewing Bee” who asked her if she had made the outfits and
told her she had done a really good job! This then culminated in members of
the sewing bee group on Facebook making a point of coming to see our
outfits and chat to Vicki.
We first met with ‘Daisy, the Drag Queen Gardener’ at Chelsea and then
again at Southport. Certainly memorable.
