“You have one new voicemail message…”
It’s them! It’s the RHS! We have officially been awarded a place to exhibit a ‘Festival’ category garden at RHS Malvern Spring Festival in May 2015.
We are overwhelmed by this decision, made in the first round of judging, and would like to thank the team we work with to have got this far so early on in the year long process.
The RHS judges were very positive. They loved the garden’s concept and story, as well as the formal design contrasting with informal planting, and the relationship between chic paving and wild planting! They were also impressed with our plant list for May as we aim to use only a seasonally appropriate selection for Spring time.
Despite the overwhelming relief, happiness and excitement all round, the hard work is only just beginning!
We have received £3000 of funding from the RHS but still need to raise at least another £8000.
We will be launching a Crowd Funding project soon on Kickstarter, so keep an eye out for the chance to be a part of this project and to receive great rewards such as free tickets, advertising, promotion and exclusive after hours access to the site!
