The People have voted and Katie’s Garden has won the Summer/City Garden category of the ‘People’s Choice Award’ – an absolute ‘bloomin’ delight!! Wonderful news and testament to a marvellous garden design by Carolyn Dunster and Noemi Mercurelli. Big thanks also to all of our tireless and cheery volunteers who have, are and will be presenting the garden to the public at the Show itself.
RHS Hampton Court themselves have awarded Katie’s Garden a SILVER MEDAL at this prestigious event. Designed by Carolyn Dunster (Simply Roses) and Noemi Mercurelli, Katie’s Garden is a life-affirming, productive cut flower garden commemorating and celebrating Katie and promoting the work that we do here at KLF.
