garden display wins award for Sanders Garden World
Knoll's Sanders Garden World was celebrating this week after winning
a top prize for its show garden at Taunton Flower Show.
The garden centre won a gold award for its display - named
'A Lost Piece of the Mediterranean' - at the event in Vivary Park
on Friday (August 5th).
Peter Burks, General Manager of the garden centre, told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"We are delighted to have been awarded the gold medal for
our entry in the Designer Gardens Class at this year's Taunton
"It is such a prestigious event in the gardening calendar
for our area. We wanted to create a garden that embodied the old
Mediterranean and was very natural and rustic, perhaps something
that would be found off the beaten track."
"The garden cost us less than £100 to build and the
judges were particularly impressed with the papier mâché
wall that was built around the space. The show garden included
olive trees, bougainvillea, vines, lavender and under planting."
"People are becoming more interested in growing Mediterranean
plants in their own gardens and we wanted to show what can be
achieved on a budget."
