Sprouts Gardens were delighted to win a Silver Merit award for our Beautiful Borders entry at Gardeners World Live 2017. The theme was ’50 Years of Gardeners’ World’ and our design was called ’50 Years of colour’.
In our celebratory border, height and colour were blended to create a dramatic display with minimal green foliage. As a tribute to the current presenters of Gardeners’ World, the display featured 50 of one of their favourite plants, the Primrose. The border was crowned with three Golden Celebration standard roses – see the full plant list below.
We were thrilled that our border was featured in the Gardeners World TV special. On the show, when discussing our entry, celebrity gardener Joe Swift said “I was drawn to this border. What strikes me is that 50 years ago you would not have found colour combinations like this. We have become more adventurous about putting different colour combinations together…It feels like it is of it’s time.”
