Chelsea Update - Gold for Edible Playgrounds

It's medals day at Chelsea and everyone will be asking 'Who got what?'. Our favorite garden, the 'The Dorset Cereals Edible Planyground' by local designer Nick Williams-Ellis has won Gold, and 'Best in Show'. Congratulations to Nick Williams-Ellis and his team for the Dorset Cereals Edible Playground.

Using traditional building materials throughout the garden to replicate a typical Dorset School Playground he and the team have produced a small garden worthy of the awards it has received. The late blossoming apple tree has worked like a dream and is in full bloom just in time for the show. No mean feat with the weather we have had so far this year.

It's not just us here at the Gardeners Calendar who are over the moon, the children in Cerne Abbas First School are overjoyed as the cress and beans they have grown as they were noticed by the Queen. She reportedly said she would get her Grandchildren to grow some too.

Congraulations to the other winners, and we shall have an update later with a complete list.

Keep your eyes on the BBC coverage for more details.
