11 Chelsea RHS Gold Medals achieved by #cactuscouple
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!
Stan and Vicki.
