Acclaimed landscaper to head up new RHS Malvern Spring Festival competition

Award-winning landscape designer Paul Hervey-Brookes is to head up an exciting new competition at this year’s RHS Malvern Spring Festival.

The Paul Hervey-Brookes Growing Challenge will see members of the public demonstrate their horticultural growing skills in a number of different categories.

No previous experience is required, just a bunch of enthusiasm and imagination.

The Growing Challenge will be open from noon on Wednesday, May 10 until 6.45am on Thursday, May 11 for exhibitors to stage their plants.

Judging will then commence in the morning and the winners will be announced that day.

Prizes will be awarded for the best plant design for each category as well as an overall Best In Show Prize.

Paul said: “This is what gardening is about – a passion for growing and nurturing.

“I’m looking for people of any age to come to show off their growing skills in my new Growing Challenge at this year’s RHS Malvern Spring Festival.

“Simply pick a category and let your imagination create a beautiful display. It’s fun and will open the door to the addictive and inspiring world of gardening shows and design. We have some fab prizes already lined up, so why not enter and show off your skills.”

The Paul Hervey-Brookes Challenge compromises of five classes – class one will look for the best stylishly designed collection of ferns. Class two, will see visitors showcase terrarium or plant group grown in an imaginative sealed unit with or without soil. Class three will look for the most imaginative houseplant group display. Class four will exhibit the best fruit from seed and class five will showcase a collection of culinary plants ideal for kitchen harvesting.

Jane Furze, head of RHS Malvern Spring Festival, added: “The Growing Challenge is a slight departure from Paul’s usual work so we’re thrilled to welcome him on board for this new and exciting competition at this year’s festival.

“We’re really looking forward to seeing the imaginative planting designs from exhibitors – may the best ones win.”

Visitors wishing to take part in the challenge should return an entry form and fee of 60p to the show secretary by Friday, May 5.

The RHS Malvern Spring Festival will take place from Thursday, May 11 until Sunday 14 May.
