Over the Rainbow at Harrogate Flower Show

We were thrilled to hear that a garden which featured SureSet’s loose recycled glass at this year’s Harrogate Autumn Flower Show have received an award.

Winning a Silver Gilt award in the inspirational gardens category, the ‘Under the Rainbow’ exhibit, designed by Sally Kimmis, was created with a Wizard of Oz theme to inspire young children and encourage them to have a hands on involvement with planting and growing their own organic produce.

The designer chose to feature SureSet recycled loose glass to represent the yellow brick road from the Wizard of Oz.

Selecting the 3mm Daffodil Yellow to provide the perfect complement to the other bright and colourful garden features, also made from recycled materials has had a huge impact with plenty of Radio and TV attention particularly ITV’s Daybreak with presenter Laura Tobin.

An extremely pleased Sally Kimmis comments, ‘Thank you again for sponsoring the garden. The yellow glass was certainly extremely well received, enhancing my design. We have certainly caused a ripple within the show garden world and we are really pleased that the risk of creating a show garden entirely from recycled materials appears to have paid off!’
