A GREEN-FINGERED enthusiast from Hutton helped a garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show win a coveted award.

Terry Porter designed and grew a vegetable garden to form part of the South West In Bloom’s plot, which picked up the coveted Diamond Jubilee award as the best of the 53 gold medals awarded across the Great Pavilion. Judges commented on the excellence of the vegetable garden, with Her Majesty The Queen reportedly remarking on the ‘inspirational veg’ during a visit.

The garden featured four sections in total, a border made up of flowers to represent floral installations in the region’s towns and villages, a wildflower and wetland area for conservation and a seaside section containing sub-tropical plantings.
