Pictures from the Chelsea Flower show

| 05/06/2009

(CNS): The Cayman Islands’ Undersea Reef Garden was awarded two medals at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show in London in May. The design by Andrew Guthrie of the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park and Stephen Hendry from Newington Nurseries in Oxfordshire (the same partnership that last year produced a silver medal award winning exhibition for the Cayman Islands’s first ever appearance at famous annual show) won gold in the floral category and was awarded the “President’s Most Creative Award”. The Cayman Islands display and some by other Caribbean islands were captured by Anna Lisa Gill.

    This is great work and Congrats to the designers and all involved.  This is the kind of support we need to provide all around to make things Cayman shine around the world.  I just hope they always keep up with international import laws so that there are no screw up like when Chuckie and Gloria were dealing with it.  What exactly happened to the Ghost Orchid that was confiscated?

    Well, it is about time we finally have been able to view some pictures from this event.  Thank you CNS!  Most people here on Cayman have no idea the importance and the high calibre that the Chelsea Flower Show is.  It is like the Olympics for plant lovers and we got a GOLD MEDAL.  Congratulations to the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park team (a very under utilized oasis on Grand Cayman who also needs more support and recognition)

    Thank you for making us residents, caymanians and expats alike very proud of.  Well done…something positive for a change!

    Keep up the good work!
