Johnsons supply Spring Flower Show's largest ever show garden

After supporting and supplying plants to the largest ever show garden at Harrogate Spring Flower Show, as part of a project being delivered in conjunction with Help For Heroes, we are proud to announce that the garden, named ‘A Homecoming Prayer’ won gold – taking top honours at the show.

Johnsons supplied plants including bamboos, grasses, acers, specimen conifers and trees, at a heavily subsidized rate as part of their sponsorship of the project.

The garden will now be relocated, in its entirety, to its final home at Dishforth Airfield, near Thirsk, where it will serve as a memorial space for the 6th Regiment Royal Logistics Corps, who recently returned to the UK from Germany.

There are plans to construct a new Cenotaph as part of the garden.

It is hoped that the garden will not only enhance the barracks, but also kick start wider gardening initiatives, including workshops for military wives and partners.

The garden is a collaborative effort, led by the 6th Royal Logistics Core, working with Help for Heroes, in support of wounded, injured and sick veterans around the country.

Members of the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) have helped to support the design and build of the show garden.

The project is also being sponsored by HESCO, a globally renowned manufacturer of defensive barriers used to protect military personnel overseas and to save homes and businesses from flooding.
