The latest collaboration between the NFU and Waitrose has been awarded a gold medal at this week's Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.

Designed once again by Penny Riley, the  display of British edible and ornamental produce continues on from the exhibitors' gold-winning success at the Chelsea Flower Show in May, and golds at the two previous Hampton Court Palace events, all for stands designed by Riley.

None of the seasonal produce on the Celebrating British stand was grown specially, and visitors have been told it is all available to buy in shops.

NFU horticultural adviser Chris Hartfield said: "It is really rewarding for everyone involved to be given this recognition and also to get such positive feedback from visitors to the show."

Waitrose horticulture buying manager Sue Steptoe said: "We are delighted to have won another gold and also very proud to showcase our passion for British fruit, vegetables and flowers."
