Light at the end of the tunnel...

One of our Show Gardens first year winners, Matthew Childs, has come far in the short two years since having his first show garden here. The Centered Garden was displayed at Jacksons for two years and was replaced by one of the new gardens this year. this link will take you to the gallery of Matt's Centred Garden when he was interviewed by Joe Swift when he opened the 2011 Jacksons show Gardens.

Since the gardens were openened in 2010, Matt has continued to visit Jacksons on Open days and we are delighted that this year he has his first show garden at Hampton Court Flower Show and that we have been able to support him with timber for use in in "Light at the End of the Tunnel" garden.

Good luck with the garden, fingers crossed for a nice shiny medal for you Matt.
