Capel Manor College scoops Best in Show at Ascot Spring Garden Show

Capel Manor College is celebrating after receiving a Gold award and Best in Show for its garden design at this year’s Young Gardeners of the Year competition at the Ascot Spring Garden Show over the weekend.

The annual competition, now in its eighth year, is organised by TV Gardener David Domoney in association with The Prince’s Foundation for Building Community. These annual awards celebrate the best of young British talent in garden design and offer students a great opportunity to create show-stopping, sustainable gardens seen by thousands of visitors at the garden show.

Kelleway’s Corner

“Our apprentices worked brilliantly as a team and their hard work paid off, winning both Gold and Best in Show. We are so proud of what they have achieved,” says Julie Dowbiggin, garden manager at Capel and lead advisor to the team.

“Feedback from the judges was very positive, the garden had an exceptionally high standard of finish, a well thought-out design and the planting scheme ticked all the boxes for sustainability.”

The Capel Manor College and Gardens apprenticeship student team put in months of planning and preparation for the competition. Their design ‘Kelleway’s Corner’ showcases what can be achieved in an urban garden with a touch of equestrian as a subtle salute to the competition’s racing venue.

The Young Gardeners of the Year gardens are judged by an expert panel of industry leaders. Entrants compete to win gold, silver gilt, silver, or bronze awards and the overall winner wins receive the Best in Show trophy.
