Moreton Park has been awarded a Large Gold Medal and best in show in the External Garden category at this year?s Shrewsbury Flower Show.
The theme for this year?s gardens was ?vintage? inspired by the show that never was owing to the start of the first world war in 1914. The garden ?Moreton Memories? is a quintessential English garden of simple shapes and sharp edges with lush herbaceous planting and English roses.
The focal point is a tranquil seated area connected with clematis covered arches invoking a relaxation area to read a book or letter from a loved one. The garden was both designed and built by Paul Farry from Moreton Park Garden Centre. This is the third time in as many years that Paul has exhibited at the show.
In 2013 he also won a large Gold Medal and prestigious best in show title. In 2012 he was awarded a Silver Gilt. Paul commented: ?I hope that the garden inspires others. Even with a small space it is possible to create a small area of beauty, somewhere to spend peaceful time to reflect.? Alyson Haywood General Manager at Moreton Park Garden Centre added: ?We are delighted to have been awarded this honour it is testament to the hard work that was put in. The Flower Show is a fantastic annual event of which we are proud to be a part of.?
The garden centre was delighted to have had support from their suppliers Westminster Stone, David Austin Roses, Chapel Cottage Plants, Bord Na Mona Horticulture, New Leaf Plants and Gardman who donated plants, growing media and accessories.
