Pershore College students plan cider-themed garden at Malvern Spring Gardening Show

Pershore College will be building a marquee garden at the Malvern Spring Gardening Show featuring equal parts hard and soft landscaping.

Pershore College's garden at the Malvern Spring Gardening Show will be a celebration of the cider and perry industry in Hereford and Worcestershire.

The original brief for the garden was given by landscaping lecturer Steve Boxall.

The winning garden designed by student Katie Cleary features a traditional, cottage garden with 50% hard landscaping and 50% soft landscaping.

The garden includes a traditional cider pub which is attached to a country cottage and a small covered area for cider production. This area will also include a seating area, where visitors to the garden can sit and talk to the students and staff about the garden and the courses on offer.

The materials for the garden are being sourced by the students and much is reclaimed material donated from local suppliers, including the College's own nursery.

The show is at Three Counties Show Ground from 6-9 May.
