Congratulations to our newsletter editor Marie Robson for not only winning the Best Garden category in the Stanley ‘Blooming Good Fun’ awards but also being crowned Overall Winner! We are all very pleased that Marie has been recognised for all the hard work and dedication to her garden.


Marie is also passionate about propagating; every plant she buys (and sometimes other HPS members’!) is divided and grown on so no surprise she has a vast nursery area. Her plant growing skills also helped to raise £164 for local charity Bryson’s Animal Sanctuary when she hosted the HPS coffee morning in September.
