In 2018 three designers received a Platinum Award. In 2017 just shy of half of the Beautiful Border designers were awarded Gold. So what treats are in store for 2019? We'll we're looking for another bumper year of applications and fascinating designs!
Beautiful Borders are a unique element of BBC Gardeners’ World Live providing an opportunity for horticultural students and budding gardeners to experience the design, planning and build of a horticultural exhibit in a show environment, without the large financial and resource commitment of a show garden. The 2019 theme "Our Space" will mean that the Beautiful Borders are packed with ideas that visitors to the show can take home to try in their own gardens.
Applications closed on 29 January 2019.
