UCARE Tulip to feature at the RHS Malvern Spring Show
Thu 7 – Sun 10 May 2015
We are thrilled that the UCARE tulip is to be presented at RHS Malvern Spring Festival 2015 in a Festival Garden designed by Kate Durr.
Kate’s background is in television presenting, most notably for ITV’s Guinness World Records, which she co-hosted with Ian Wright. She is married to actor Jason Durr, well known for his role as PC Mike Bradley in ITV's ‘Heartbeat’. Brought up on a small holding, and after having her children, Kate turned her talent to garden design and is a student currently studying at The Cotswold Gardening School under the award-winning garden designer principle, Caroline Tatham. Just seven weeks into her year-long diploma course, she was encouraged to submit a design to RHS Malvern – which was selected.
The garden is an elegant outdoor space in which to relax and contemplate with planting, reflective water and a dramatic feature wall. Full of sensual contrasts – dominated by three statuesque Cor-ten steel panels capturing the beauty of ferns created by master blacksmith and sculptor Neil Lossock. The garden will feature the UCARE tulip which will be especially grown by Rob Evans the owner of Pheasant Acre Plants nursery.
On the grass, in the vicinity of the Festival Gardens, UCARE will have a stand under one of the ubiquitous Chinese hat gazebos of the RHS shows. Please do come and see us.
