A GARDEN designer from Crow Country has struck gold at a prestigious flower show.
Jill Foxley, who runs her landscape gardening company, The Perfumed Garden, from her home in Chrishall, won a gold medal at the Royal Horticultural Society's Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. She was given the prize for her project entitled The Healing Garden, which was supported by Macmillan Cancer Support, the Crow's charity of the year.
She explained: "The garden was designed to highlight the use of plants that are important in the production of cancer treatments both conventional and herbal, in a relaxing environment using gentle colours, fragrances and textures.
"The garden was staged with the generous help of over thirty national and local generous sponsors who loaned or donated elements for the garden," she said.
