Greenfingers Charity would like to once again thank all those who helped to spread a little #FloralFriday cheer last week (Friday 15th May).
Amongst the many fabulous posts, leading the way and pretty in pink were Vitax and Adam Taylor. Celebratory gardener and Greenfingers Charity Patron, Ann-Marie Powell spent the day gardening in her beautiful floral frock, which was specially chosen by her personal stylist, Bert (aka as her son!). Mike Lind shared his #FloralFriday photos to celebrate the re-opening of Monkton Elm Garden Centre on Wednesday. And GTNs Trevor Pfeiffer once again supported the initiative by rocking up at his local Van Hage Garden Centre wearing one of his many favourite floral shirts. Glee and LOFA joined in the fun by creating and posting floral videos whilst amateur gardener and photographer Tim Howell brought more than a little cheer with his film.
This coming #FloralFriday (Friday 22nd May) Greenfingers Charity will be celebrating its presence at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2019. Designed by Kate Gould and entirely funded by a private donor along with many gifts in kind, The Greenfingers Charity Garden was amongst last year’s highlights. The charity will be sharing its favourite Chelsea pics and would love you to share yours too.
