It was Medals Day today at the Chelsea Flower Show and our backer for the early-entry tickets, Jacques Amand International, has – exceptionally – won two Gold Medals. The company had two stands, one showing special hardy garden plants and the other tender indoor ones. MPG members arrived from 6.30 am and lapped up the atmosphere and gorgeous displays well before the crowds and rain. John Fielding’s image shows part of one of the Jacques Amand stands in the great pavilion.
