A LOCAL workshop Florist based in Elmley Castle specialising in weddings and events and workshops exhibited at Malvern Autumn Show and won the an RHS Gold medal for her Floral Moongate display, the only one awarded in the Floral Fiesta this year.

Chrissy Barnes was invited to display at the show back in June after attending an event celebrating British Flowers and Flowers from the Farm which are a collective of British flower growers and florists who grow all their own flowers.

MS Barnes said: "You can get the most amazing flowers and flowers from these growers, not something you will find in a supermarket and I love to use and support these growers. There wasn't a brief to follow so I was left to my own imagination as to what to display so I took the Moongate that is proving popular at weddings and events recently and created a floral woodland arch which wowed the judges and the public alike."

Ms Barnes is hosting various workshops at Pershore RHS college and is running her own Christmas wreath workshops again using all British foliages. Visit enchanted.florist for details.
