We have been showing at the Manchester RHS Flower Show since its inception.
The RHS Flower Show came to Manchester in 1999, and since then has been the most important and largest horticultural event in the North West of England.
We were invited to participate in that inaugural flower show, and with an air of trepidation we mounted a floor display with orchids interspersed through a wandering stream and bridge.
We actually never thought at the time to submit our display for judging, and really didn't realise how good our efforts had been until we were awarded the Trophy for the Best Display in the Marquee.
Since then we have tried to mount a display each year, only missing on a couple of occasions, and have mounted several award winning displays including a few which took Gold Medals.
The RHS Flower Show Tatton Park 2015..... Gold again !

Together with whom we created this years stunning Gold Medal display, which is viewable by clicking on the image below. (Sam Hurley OSGB - Chris Burrows NEOS - Val Micklewright OSGB)
