Council gardeners pick up another medal at the RHS Tatton Flower Show

Lancaster City Council has dug up yet another medal at the RHS Tatton Flower show.

This year's entry picked up a silver gilt in the National Flowerbed Competition.

And local people will be able to see the display up close for themselves when it is recreated in Morecambe this summer.

This year's entry is entitled 'Flutter by' and features two butterflies on a raised flower head emerging from a meadow of bedding plants and shrubs which attract butterflies into the garden.

It has been inspired by the Edwardian Palm House at Williamson Park, which now houses some of the world's most beautiful species of butterfly and is one of the park's most popular attractions.

Work will start on recreating the display in Morecambe’s promenade gardens next week and will be ready by the end of July, ready to delight visitors over the summer.

Coun David Smith, cabinet member with responsibility for Environmental Services, said: "The team responsible for putting together the display should feel proud of themselves for achieving yet another medal in one of the toughest competitions around.

“I’m looking forward to seeing it recreated in Morecambe so that both local people and visitors can see the award winning display for themselves.”
