Elsewhere the Tour de France, which runs through Harrogate this summer, was making its presence felt in award winning designs.

Gold winners include Harrogate Borough Council with its Grand Depart Legacy, based on the Tour de France. Meanwhile BALI Yorkshire/North East won a silver gilt for a garden inspired by the race.

Best nursery display was from Southfield Nurseries, which grows cacti. Avon Bulbs won the Innovative Display award for another Tour de France-themed display.

The North of England Horticultural Society expects up to 60,000 visitors to the show over the weekend.
