THE NATIONAL Farmers Union has won their eighth coveted Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) gold medal in succession, at the 2004 Chelsea Flower Show.
This year‘s winning display, co-sponsored with Sainsbury‘s, showcased the ‘Best of British‘ fruit, flowers, vegetables and plants from all over the UK.
It was designed by the award-winning Penny Riley, of UK Horticulture.
Speaking from the Chelsea Flower Show, NFU president Tim Bennett said: “It is fantastic to see such a carefully sculpted exhibit made wholly from British produce.
“The vibrant colours make a wonderful display, and the top quality produce is a great endorsement for UK farmers and growers.”
