Lindsay Anglin with here winning garden at Malvern
Landscape gardeners visiting the Malvern Spring Gardening Show will have the opportunity to view designs created by the 10 finalists in this year’s Chris Beardshaw Mentoring Scholarship (CBMS), sponsored by Bradstone.
Now in its second year the 12 month scheme offers the winning scholar the chance to work alongside Chris Beardshaw as well as receive invaluable business advice and technical support from Bradstone. The winner will also gain work experience with nurseries and design contractors.
Open to amateur, trainee and semi-professional landscapers, the ten finalists come from a range of professional backgrounds and will display garden designs inspired by the theme of ‘Dance’. The gardens will be assessed by a panel comprising Chris Beardshaw and a representative from both Malvern’s partner the Royal Horticultural Society and Bradstone.
Chris Beardshaw said: “I am passionate about raising the profile of the landscape design industry and what it takes to become a professional landscape gardener, which was my inspiration for developing the Scholarship. A unique vocational scheme, it is designed to instill a passion for creating gardens that people fall in love with into upcoming designers.”
Group chief executive of Bradstone Bill Bolsover said: “The Chris Beardshaw Mentoring Scholarship is an important partnership for Bradstone. As a leader in the supply and manufacture of reconstituted stone paving and walling products, Bradstone has many years of experience in garden landscaping products and is always keen to support cutting edge design and fresh blood coming into the industry.
The Chris Beardshaw finalists can be found in the show gardens area which is adjacent to the Design For Living Theatre at The Malvern Spring Gardening Show.
