New Date for Garden winners to be revealed at garden talk night – Tuesday 4 October

The Awards presentation to reveal the winners of our Ready-Steady-Grow gardening competition we launched earlier this year, will now be Tuesday 04 October.

The winners in seven categories will be announced at a presentation evening at Rickards Hall on Tuesday 4 October (6pm for 6.30pm start), followed by a talk from renowned horticulturalist and RHS judge, Jim Buttress, who is also a regular presenter on BBC Radio Sussex/Surrey Dig It. The evening is expected to finish by 8.00 pm.

Jim has won eight gold medals at RHS Chelsea, and in 2006 he was awarded the highest accolade possible in the gardening world in recognition of his unrivalled contribution to horticulture – the Victoria Medal of Honour (VMH).
