Budding Bath florists to showcase talents at major UK events

bath tv college floristryCity of Bath College’s Floristry students have been invited to showcase their talents at this year’s Tatton Park, Hampton Court and Chelsea Flower Shows.

One of the students, Megan Troughton will be representing City of Bath College at the world-famous Chelsea Flower Show. She secured her place at the prestigious five-day flower show after winning the over 25s regional heats at London’s Covent Garden.

The 31-year-old went head-to-head with other trainee florists from around the country to design a winning wedding bouquet. It had to be for a gold medal winner at the Chelsea Flower Show and Megan chose a watering can design. The 100th Chelsea flower show in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea, from May 21 to 25, is organised by the Royal Horticultural Society and is the highlight of the gardening calendar across the UK.

It will be the third year the College has been represented at the Chelsea Flower Show. Hannah Lee won a bronze medal in 2012 in the under 25s section of the Chelsea Florist of the Year competition, and Bethan McGivern won the same honour in 2010.

The College’s Floristry students have also been invited to showcase their talents at this year’s Tatton Park and Hampton Court Flower Shows. They won the chance to enter both shows in the first year they were invited to apply.
