Writtle College’s Further Education floristry department have secured a Silver-Gilt Grenfell for its floral display of ‘Vintage England’ at Hampton Court Flower Show.

The display, exhibited in the Vintage England Floral Marquee - VE/4 -, is based on a ‘Shabby Chic’ theme. ‘Shabby Chic’ is a form of interior design where furniture and furnishings are either chosen for their age and signs of wear and tear or are new items that have been distressed to achieve the appearance of antique.

All flowers and plants used in the display have been supplied by Sweet Peas and Bumble Bees, purveyors of English Cut Flowers – www.sweetpeasandbumblebees.co.uk
