Brannfords Garden Makers kindly sponsored a show garden on behalf of the WFGA at Blenheim Palace Flower Show this year.  We are delighted to report that they won a Silver Gilt Medal for the hardworking WRAGS ‘Romantic Garden’ .  Well done to designer Nicola Hazelton, Alex Anley, Joanne Woodworth and Sue Kemp.  All current trainees or WRAGS graduates.

WRAGS 25th Anniversary

Last weekend we marked the 25th Anniversary of WRAGS, our unique one year training scheme.  We had brilliant weather at Waterperry, thank you to everyone who helped and attended, not forgetting our brilliant panellists Christine Walkden, Annette Pursey and Andrew Brannford White, for insightful answers to gardening questions in very hot surroundings. WRAGS past and present, Garden Owners, Regional Managers and members joined us to celebrate the contribution that WRAGS has made to changing the careers of so many people.  There will be a full write up in our Autumn Newsletter.  In the meantime here are some photos of the day.
