A SPALDING worker has been chosen from 19,000 colleagues to assist Homebase garden designer Joe Swift at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Garden centre team leader Jacky Stephens will be learning about Joe’s inspiration and contents of the Homebase Teenage Cancer Trust Garden, which captures the power of plants and natural forms within urban and suburban environments.

Jacky said: “It is going to be a great experience and hopefully I will bring back some tips for colleagues and customers.”

Jacky was nominated by regional manager Andy Adkin for her dedication to improving her gardening knowledge and to ensuring the store’s plants are kept to a high quality.

Jacky will be meeting with Joe to learn about the design of the garden and its contents and assisting with the build, before revealing their knowledge of the garden to hundreds of visitors at the show by answering questions and handing out leaflets about the garden.
