Eden apprentices’ garden named best at Boconnoc show

A show garden designed by Eden Project apprentices has won a gold award and the prestigious Banham Cup for best overall show garden at the Cornwall Garden Society Spring Flower Show, which opened at the Boconnoc Estate near Lostwithiel on Saturday 1 April.

The garden was called Go Against the Tide and has been designed to evoke the abundant underwater life of estuaries.

It was the work of horticultural apprentices Jorin Lenz-Williams, Sean Paramore and Hope Browne under the supervision of Eden horticulturists Emma Gunn and Riyah Snow, herself a former Eden apprentice.

It featured plants chosen to mimic aquatic life, including succulents to represent anemones. It also boasted striking silver fish sculptures “swimming” through the garden and a sunken boat – creating the perfect habitat for underwater plants and animals.

Emma Gunn said: “I’m over the moon! All our hard work paid off and I couldn’t be more proud of the team!”

Jorin, Sean and Hope were on hand during the show to talk about the garden.

The 106th Cornwall Garden Society Spring Flower Show is the South West’s first major flower show of the horticultural year, attracting more than 6,000 garden enthusiasts over its two days.

Eden has exhibited at the event every year since 2011.

Eden’s award-winning apprenticeship programme is run in collaboration with Cornwall College and employs around 25 apprentices at any one time.
