golden trowel award

A special award for an individual who the Directors of Ruxley Manor feel has a genuine commitment to gardening that deserves to be recognised. You may know someone who has overcome personal adversity to create a garden or perhaps you would like to nominate a neighbour who helps to maintain your own garden... either way this person will be that ‘special someone’ whose love of gardening shines through.

Please email the name and contact details of the person you would like to receive the ‘Golden Trowel’ trophy (and £100 gift voucher) to inbloom@ruxley-manor.co.uk. Only one nomination per entry please. Please briefly explain why this person should win.
