Belvoir Flower & Garden Festival 2021
The London College of Garden Design has announced that they have renewed their sponsorship of the Countryside Borders Competition at the Belvoir Castle Flower and Garden Show 2021. This is the third year that the College has sponsored the Competition which aims to help budding new garden designers and experts to show what they can achieve with plants and find out what it’s like to create a show exhibit.
The competition is open to anyone involved in garden design and landscaping. Tina Worboys, winner of the 2019 competition said “It was a real honour to create my Countryside Border. Andy and the team were so encouraging, and the public response to my ‘Rewilding Hedgerow’ concept was so positive that it made my first taste of a flower show very special.”
Director Andrew Fisher Tomlin said “At LCGD we are committed to improving the role of innovative planting design within our profession and our unique Planting Design Diploma is now regularly fully enrolled.” He added “This competition is just another way in which we can encourage new designers to create engaging and exciting planting schemes in their careers.”
The Belvoir Castle Flower and Garden Show takes place on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th July 2021 and is located in the Capability Brown parkland of the beautiful Belvoir Castle. It is the longest, continuously running garden show in the UK. More details of the competition can be obtained by downloading the brief here.
