Lindsay Anglin, the inaugural Chris Beardshaw scholar, has attained a well-deserved gold medal at the Malvern Autumn Show for her ‘Bradstone Bacchus Garden’.
The ‘edible’ garden, which was shown in the new ‘From Plot to Pot’ pavilion to encourage people to practise The Good Life approach to self sufficiency, is the second accolade presented to Lindsay this year. The first was the RHS silver medal she won for ‘A Twist in the Tale’ garden at the Malvern Spring Gardening Show, which was subsequently rebuilt at three schools in Bristol. Lindsay was supported over the Autumn Show weekend by Bradstone, who sponsored the garden through the scholarship scheme.
Chris Beardshaw, Lindsay’s mentor in the scheme, said: “This is a huge boost of confidence for Lindsay and a positive step towards the ultimate challenge of creating the show garden at Chelsea next May. It shows what is possible given the right expertise, energy and input which is indicative of the commitment shown not only by Lindsay and myself, but from Bradstone, The Three Counties, and the RHS in making this pioneering venture a success.”
