Chelsea Flower Show

Accolades for Australian garden design came in the form of a silver-gilt medal won by The Trailfinders Australian Garden: the product of a joint effort between a nurseryman, a designer, two landscapers and 14 volunteers. It took 17 days to create the exhibit.

Steve and Louise Blencowe

Proud mum, Louise Blencowe with Steve at the Australian exhibit.

The landscaper shaking hands with the Queen on our cover is 27 year old Steve Blencowe from country Victoria who has been in the industry for 5 years trading as Apex Landscapes in Melbourne. After a great time in England, I'm sure Steve will be back again next May in a quest to go one better and bring home the gold.
