Johnsons supply plants to 'Best in show' at the RHS Cardiff Flower Show

Johnsons of Whixley has congratulated Chris Myers on winning ‘Best in Show’ at the RHS Show Cardiff for his garden celebrating the mythical tale of ‘Bloudeuwedd’.

According to the myth, Blodeuwedd was a woman created from flowers, and the wife of the hero Lleu.

While her husband was away, Blodeuwedd fell in love with a neighbour and together they hatched a plan to kill Lleu while he bathed.

But Lleu thwarted death, and transformed into an eagle to flee, before returning to human form.

As punishment, Lleu turned Blodeuwedd into a tawny owl and she was banished to live a solitary life in the woods.

Elements from this magical story were represented in the garden.

Chris also received a Gold Medal in recognition of the high standard of his garden.

Johnsons is proud to have supplied plants to the award-winning garden, including ferns, ivy, blackthorn and oak.

RHS Cardiff was held at Bute Park in the heart of the city centre, and celebrated the best of springtime while encouraging visitors to learn and grow as gardeners.

Chris, who is best known as the presenter of Channel 4’s ‘Wild Things’, is a regular guest blogger on the Johnsons website.
