The Big Allotment Challenge

After months of waiting, I was so excited when five of our fabulous milk churns finally featured on BBC2’s ‘The Big Allotment Challenge’ last week. Famous!

As part of the semi-final, each pair of contestants had to create a pedestal to sit on the milk churns that included chrysanthemums and other flowers from the contestant’s allotments. They did a great job, with the winners Rupert and Dimi producing a beautiful design.


The winning pedestal!


Lots of brides hire our milk churns for a pedestal arrangement, to go either side of the entrance to their church or to decorate the inside of their venue. They always look spectacular and are a really stylish way of making a big impact. This one below was created by the very talented Kate Howard, owner of HedgeRose Florist in Marlborough

We have more TV appearances coming up later this year, including a magic show and a period drama. I’ll keep you posted!
