We were delighted that the Garden has become a Partner Garden of the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS).

The Garden was also been awarded National Collection Status, awarded by Plant Heritage in recognition of its Meconopsis cultivars and species of large blue poppies. The team successfully curated 95% of the blue poppy cultivars list to achieve their National Collection status which now showcases an impressive 32 varieties.

Both awards pay testament to the dedication of team of 42 local volunteers who worked tirelessly to create and maintain the high standard of design and planting in the Garden today.
