Wiltshire College Lackham was victorious in a garden competition at The Royal Bath & West Show.

Two student teams were challenged to design and build a show garden in just two hours.

Each team had a 3.65sqm plot and the same selection of trees, shrubs and flowering plants.

Lackham beat Bridgewater College Cannington Centre with what was said to be a more considered but free-flowing design, featuring multiple levels and zones with denser planting.

The winning students were Andrew Sharp, 23, of Devizes, and Ellen White, 18, of Melksham.

Mr Sharp said: “What we have learned on our course so far has been fantastic. It really allowed us to very quickly work out what we wanted to create with this garden.”
