Student designer Peter Reader, who won sponsorship from BALI Affiliate Provender Nurseries to take part at Hampton Court won the People’s Choice Award for his garden Four Corners as well as a Silver Gilt Flora medal.

BALI members also did well in The Summer Garden category. SRUC (Scotland’s Rural College) was awarded a Silver Gilt Flora for its Witches of Macbeth garden, designed by Jenna Stuart, and Fisher Tomlin & Bowyer received a Silver Gilt Flora for The Garden Pad, designed by Dan Bowyer.

BALI’s chief operations officer Wayne Grills commented: "I am delighted that the RHS judges have rewarded BALI members for their professional excellence and attention to detail and add my congratulations to the other plaudits they have undoubtedly received.

"With such an impressive number of visitors, this year’s event will have been a wonderful showcase for those contractors and designers specialising in the residential market."
