Rosy Hardy is an award-winning nurseryman and has been growing herbaceous perennials commercially for the past 30 years, with the Nursery and Rosy appearing regularly on national television.
Rosy has an exhausting show circuit that runs virtually all year; their efforts have not gone unnoticed as she has been a consistent medal winner at RHS Flower Shows including 24 Gold medals at The Chelsea Flower Show making her the most successful female floral exhibitor. Also a Gold Medal Garden Designer at The Hampton Court Flower Show, picking up a Gold for their first ever garden at Hampton Court in 2001, getting the double in 2004 with a total of 4 Gold Medals and 3 Silver Gilt medals for her garden designs. She was also awarded an RHS Chelsea Silver medal for her Brewin Dolphin Forever Freefolk Garden 2016.
Beautiful herbaceous borders and gardens are the inspiration for all of Rosy’s designs in which she has introduced many new varieties including Gaura Rosyjane, Gaura Freefolk Rosy, Gaura Ice Cool Rosy.
Rosy is a member of the RHS Herbaceous committee and an RHS exhibit judge so is aware of the standards that the RHS expects.
Rosy’s talk will be about the Gardener’s mantra, right plant – right place.
Where do plants want to be planted? It’s difficult to ask them but reading up and taking advice really does help. Rosy will run through plants that like hot or cool situations.
Rosy will focus on seasonal combinations for both situations, so no matter what you are considering for a client’s garden there will be something to inspire you.
