Repeat Success at Harrogate Spring Flower Show 2017
A show garden starts to breathe from the first thought of its original concept. It takes its first steps with a planting plan and starts to walk through its planning, sourcing materials and seeking partners. Then, as it edges closer to maturity at the show build stage, it comes alive and takes on its own form. This year, our baby grew into the Gold Award-winning Fresh Start Show Garden and took everyone’s breath away with its beauty. We couldn’t have been prouder parents!
The Fresh Start Garden signified a new beginning in many ways – a new outlook across the world, in the UK and closer to home too as the Paxman team take the next steps in our progression as one of the leading commercial and domestic landscaping companies in the North of England.
Our Garden claimed the team’s latest Gold – a third in as many Shows and following other successes this season at the Association of Professional Landscapers Awards for another top-flight landscaping scheme. This year we went one better, adding the Newby Cup for Planting Quality to our bursting bag of accolades from the Show judges.
If you were lucky enough to have visited the Show and the Fresh Start Garden, you would have seen Justin Paxman, our director and ever-present landscaper, designer and spokesperson, in full flow, talking to visitors and sharing his experiences.
To all of you who have helped us on the Fresh Start journey this year – sponsors, suppliers, constructors, visitors and supporters – may we take this opportunity to say THANK YOU. And if you’ve made a Fresh Start yourself this year (or are planning to!), we hope our show garden may have provided a little gentle inspiration along the way.
We’ve made a little video review for those of you who perhaps couldn’t make it over the Show week (or who just want to take it all in once again!)
