Juliet Sargeant Visits Y6

Our Year 6 pupils had the amazing opportunity to meet Chelsea Flower Show Gold Medal Winner Juliet Sargeant today.

Juliet explained the processes that go into creating a unique and personal garden.

Juliet explained to us difficult to know where to start and the pitfalls can be daunting.

For over 20 years, Juliet Sargeant has been winning awards (most recently, Gold at the Chelsea Flower Show 2016) for her imaginative solutions to complex garden problems. She shared her knowledge of design & the experience of construction with top tips on how to make a success of a garden project.

Juliet was a plant expert. She explained to us exactly which plants will suit different conditions. I didn't realise that it all took so much planning and skill.

Juliet also took the time to explain the meaning behind her award winning garden from this year's show. As the first black landscape designer to create a garden at the Chelsea Flower Show in its 103-year history, it was an even more amazing achievement to be awarded a gold medal.

Juliet Sargeant, 50, hopes the success for her Modern Slavery Garden will help spur a huge increase in diversity in horticulture “within five to 10 years”.
