A group of Skipton-based garden designers have won a gold at Harrogate flower show with their “playful” entry.

Students at the Northern School of Garden Design, hosted by Craven College in Skipton, entered ‘Secret Garden’ in the annual competition. They were in competition with professional designers, colleges and universities, and so are delighted with their gold.

“The garden includes a water feature and, clipped hedges, and was included in the ‘show garden’ category.

Course Tutor Richard Easton said: “The students have done an amazing job and are bringing to life a playful, modern garden, passing from formal entertaining areas to a wild, forgotten corner with a rill starting in a golden bowl of water, passing between stone pillars to the secret area where the ‘Quill’ sculpture rises amongst trees.

“It will be a real visual feast and inspiration for visitors to the show.”
