Linda and Bryan Goodey of Southfield Nurseries of Morton are celebrating being awarded Best in Show in the Floral Marquee at RHS Malvern Spring Flower Show.

Their daughter Eleanor Brown said: “We are over the moon as it is the first time we have received Best in Show two shows running in the same season.”

The nursery received Best in Show at Harrogate Flower Show with their display of cacti and succulents.

Eleanor says it is the nursery’s 12th Best in Show at Malvern overall, and they are on course to reach 180 RHS gold medals this year.

Linda and Bryan, who have been growing cactus commercially for 40 years, launched their 200th cultivar at the show, Chamaelobivia Lincoln Legend.

The weather at Malvern was better than Harrogate a few weeks earlier, when the couple had to protect their display from low night-time temperatures.
