Barton Mills & District Garden Club’s entry in the Sandringham Flower Show won a gold meal for the third year running.

It entered its show garden of just four square metres in the ‘small gardens’ section, designed on this year’s theme - ‘coastal garden’ - mainly by club members Jane and Geoff Langley, with help from Shirley Beardsmore and Pat Fuller.

The event, held last month in the grounds of Sandringham House, was attended by Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.

Competitors had just the day before the show to build their garden, after which the marquee in which they were built was secured for judging and visits the following day.

The royal couple’s house guests this year includes Dames Judi Dench and Maggie Smith.

John Berrett said: “A coach full of club members visited the show and were delighted to see that the club’s entry had won a gold medal for the third year running. The icing on the cake was that it was voted ‘best in show’ for that category.

“So I’d like to think that at least two members of the royal family might associate the name Barton Mills with horticultural excellence!”
