It’s a gold medal...

Paul Beales, Head of Plant Health Technical Extension Team, talks about the long and winding road to winning a prestigious gold medal at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

"Looking back through an old note-book, I discovered an entry for a meeting dated 27 June 2017 entitled 'RHS Chelsea planning 2018'.

"Of the many plant health engagement activities we do throughout the year, Chelsea work really does start very early! Learning (hopefully) from the experiences of the previous year, which was the first team effort at Chelsea without a professional external designer, we had a show of hands whether the inevitable sleepless nights pay dividends and we should pursue a showing at the 2018 event.

"RHS Chelsea impacts a massive national and international audience, and with BBC and numerous media opportunities, enthusiastic gardeners, professional horticulturalists, parliamentary groups and royal visitors, the opportunity to raise plant health awareness to the interested multitudes proffers real benefits in the future of protecting the UK environment against harmful plant pest and disease threats."
