BBC Gardeners' World Live

None of the National Committee was able to organise GWL in 2015. Please help  - if you can take on this task in future years, please contact Patricia Foster by email  -   In 2016 the BBC Gardeners' World Live is from 16th - 19th June.

In 2013, Sue Clarke and Maureen Hersee arranged the display at GWL, several other people including Jean Roscoe, David and Glenna Toyne and Clare Winfrey helped with the set up.  The show was open 12th-16th June.  The display won the award of 'Commended' from the RHS.


For 2012, two members from Derbyshire, Sally Meecham and Ruth Sands, very kindly volunteered to do the display for us.  The show ran from 13th - 17th June.  Their delightful display is pictured below.  Sadly, it seems the RHS did not award medals to National Society exhibits this year, which was very disappointing for Sally, Ruth and all their helpers.  However, the display was Highly Commended and received third prize in its category.


In 2011 the theme of the garden, arranged by Sue Clarke, was A Homage to Margery Fish, the Doyenne of Cottage Gardening (see East Lambrook Manor Gardens).  It was awarded a bronze medal by the RHS.  This is the first time the Society stands have been judged by the RHS.


In 2010, Sue Clarke arranged the display and it was "Highly Commended".

The CGS display at this show in 2009 was set up by Stuart Jones helped by members of the Shropshire Group.  It was Highly Commended - no higher award can be given to a Society stand at this show.
