Jim Gardiner, a former Askham Bryan student, is now the RHS?s executive vice president and director of horticulture, and judged alongside TV gardener David Domoney, who said: ?It?s great to see students at different stages of their learning coming together and sharing their expertise. They?ve all worked together to create some terrific show gardens and the winning garden was super.?
