hever castle – Champions of perennial

We’d like to congratulate the gardening team for winning an award from the gardening charity, Perennial. Hever Castle has been awarded a ‘Champions of Perennial Award’ in recognition of all the charity work the Hever Castle gardeners have participated in over the last year.

Memorably the gardeners assisted in the landscaping of a large show garden, ‘A Growing Obsession’, at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show – an opportunity which the Hever Castle gardeners relished.

Over the festive period the gardeners also dressed up as gnomes to help raise money for Perennial. On being presented with the award, Head Gardener Neil said:

“It was a real honour to receive this award from such a wonderful and worthy charity”
