The Plant Heritage team scooped the Gold Award for the category "Seasonal plants from the National Plant Collections" at the Early Spring Royal Horticultural Society Fair which took place on 16 and 17 February in Vincent Square, London.
Plant Heritage is an organisation which works on the conservation of garden plants, and their winning stand was made up of material from such gardens as Buckingham Palace, Myddelton House, The Royal Parks Isabella Plantation and Regents Park, and Chiswick House and Gardens Trust.
Estates manager Geraldine King said: "This is the second year running that the Chiswick House Camellias have been part of a Gold Award winning team. The feedback from the judges and visitors this year on the unusual varieties and display of our Camellias was very rewarding. And some of these visitors have already been inspired to travel from Vincent Square to Chiswick to see these heritage Camellias in the Conservatory where they have been growing for 200 years during our annual Camellia Show which ends on March 13."
The Chiswick House Camellia Show 2016 runs from 11 February to 13 March.
