Johnsons of Whixley joins Chris Myers and Dales charity for Chatsworth Flower Show

myers

A local horticultural nursey has joined forces with TV’s ‘off-grid’ gardener to create a garden for the upcoming Chatsworth Flower Show, while rallying support for a Yorkshire Dales preservation charity. Johnsons of Whixley has donated £2,000 worth of plants to award-winning garden designer, Chris Myers, to create his show garden, which is inspired by the Dales.

The garden, named ‘Hay time in the Dales’, will feature a cottage, a meadow of wildflowers, broadleaved trees and herbaceous perennials.

The project aims to raise awareness of the work undertaken by the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust, a charity that supports the well-being of the Yorkshire Dales and encourages sustainable work and economic development in and around the area.

Myers, who lives ‘off the grid’ in the Dales, presented Channel 4’s ‘Wild Things’ and is a rising star in the world of landscape design. He is also an established customer of Johnsons.

The RHS Chatsworth Flower Show runs from the 6 to 10 June.

Johnsons of Whixley’s Ellie Richardson said: “We are very excited to be able to help Chris with his show garden. The Chatsworth Show is still in its infancy, so it’s great to help Chris put it on the map.

“Being a part of Chris’s project allows us the opportunity to showcase our brand and connect with people within the industry, while raising the profile of an important local cause.”

Chris Myers said: ‘’The highlight of any flower show has to be the show gardens and I am so chuffed to be producing one at Chatsworth.

“The gardens at Chatsworth are set to be as good as those seen at Chelsea, so I’m delighted to have the help and support of Johnsons of Whixley. The donation of plants I have received will really raise the standard and hopefully help me produce a garden that will do Yorkshire proud.”

Johnsons of Whixley is a family business established over 50 years and one of the largest commercial nurseries in Europe.
