A ROYAL Horticultural Society (RHS) gold medal winning garden designer and TV presenter will be the guest speaker at our Open Day next month (June, 2016).

Kate Durr will be hosting a talk at the Open Day on Thursday, June 30 entitled ‘Winning with Wyevale’ all about using our plants in her RHS Malvern show garden in 2015.

Adam Dunnett, our Sales and Marketing Director, said: “We’re delighted that Kate will be attending our Open Day, which is aimed at primarily our garden designers and landscape customers.

“Kate has a diploma in professional garden design after studying at the renowned Cotswold Gardening School. She designed and built her first RHS show garden at the Malvern Spring Festival in May 2015, after winning a national RHS competition. Her garden ‘Constraining Nature’ won an RHS Gold medal and was awarded the Best Festival Garden prize.

“Recently Kate worked with Highgrove at the Royal Gardens in Gloucestershire as Creative Director of its first week-long garden festival in April. She designed and created spring plant displays and was the buyer for the Highgrove plant fair attended by more than 5,000 visitors.

“We’re inviting people to come to our Open Day to tour our 70-acre container nursery site where we grow more than 1.5 million plants annually, including more than 1,000 different varieties. Our team will be on hand to meet attendees and share their expertise in plant selection and product knowledge.”

The event will start at 10am with a welcome speech and coffee. There will then be a nursery tour and a talk by one of our speakers. To follow will be a complimentary lunch and a talk from Kate at 2pm and then another nursery tour. The Open Day will finish at around 4pm. 

Kate added: “I am delighted to be a part of Wyevale Nurseries’ Open Day. As a company it understands the demands of creating show gardens and is able to deliver fantastic quality plants, in generous sizes, that win awards.

“Its range is always on-trend and it is constantly introducing new and exciting lines, that work well for both contemporary and traditional garden designs alike.”
