Success again at the Chelsea Flower Show
The judging is now over and we are delighted to announce that our garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show has won a Silver Medal. For the second year running the Foundation has had a garden at the Show, this time a Show Garden placed in the prestigious Main Avenue.
The ‘500 Years of Covent Garden' - The Sir Simon Milton Foundation Garden in partnership with Capco, designed by Lee Bestall, celebrates Covent Garden’s early roots as a fruit orchard belonging to Westminster Abbey, its centuries as a flower, fruit and vegetable market, and the popular shopping and dining destination it is today. This beautiful garden has been drawing huge crowds, including yesterday when celebrities queued up to be photographed in the calm, tranquil setting on a blisteringly hot day.
