Martin celebrates first Best in Show success
A KNUTSFORD nursery was crowned ‘Best in Show’ for its blooming great display at a flower show in Harrogate.
Chrysanthemums Direct took home the prestigious award after winning over the Harrogate Flower Show judges with its Premier Gold Award-winning horticultural trade stand.
The show, which took place between September 13 and 15, is judged one of the top three gardening events in Britain, and the team from Knutsford beat off competition from nearly 100 other nurseries to win the coveted title.
Chrysanthemums Direct’s exhibition manager, Martyn Flint, said: “We are always looking to do the best we can, and it’s a good feeling to win.
“A lot of time and effort went into it.
“I may be on the face of it but there were lots of people working in the background.”
Chrysanthemums Direct, which is based on Holmes Chapel Road, has been competing in flower shows since establishing itself in 2008. In the five years it has been trading the nursery has gone from strength to strength, picking up numerous awards and even supplying blooms to Marks and Spencer.
It is the first time that the nursery has won Best in Show at the Harrogate show, and Martyn said he is looking forward to coming back next year to compete again.
