Two young South Holland horticulturists have taken inspiration from a meeting with RHS Chelsea Flower Show Gold medal-winning garden designer Adam Frost.

Advanced Apprentices from Spalding Horticultural Training Group Charlie Gaunt and Sam Handley, accompanied by Lorna Howitt, who runs the training group and apprenticeship programme, were invited to a special career event at she show, along with other budding horticulturists and secondary school students.

The RHS hosted the event as part of the industry-wide Horticulture Matters campaign, which aims to raise the profile of careers in horticulture.

Charlie, who works for Wyeplants Limited, and Sam, who is employed by Nursery Fresh Plants Limited, also got to look around the show gardens and exhibitions in the Great Pavilion.

Lorna said: “Adam Frost is very committed to working with young people and helping them develop careers in horticulture.
