At this year’s RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, six colleges created wonderful displays celebrating the Rio Carnival. Many congratulations to Merrist Wood College, the winner of Future Florist 2016 and a Silver-Gilt Medal!
With a colour palette of yellow, orange and red, the inspiration for their intricate design was The Phoenix, a mythical bird from Greek and Roman legends. The College will now be taking part in the RHS Future Florist 2017 competition at next year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
At the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park later this month, a further group of colleges will be competing and the top two colleges will be joining Merrist Wood College at Chelsea.
