A DYNAMIC design duo from Ledsham have struck gold at the RHS Flower Show at Tatton Park.
Mother-and-son team Dori and Howard Miller were awarded the Royal Horticultural Society’s top medal for their design of the Quaker Concern for the Abolition of Torture (Q-CAT) garden ‘World Without Torture’.
This is the second gold medal for the pair, who first collaborated on the design of Oxfam’s garden ‘When the Waters Rise’ at last year’s show.
Amateur designer Dori first won a silver medal in 2010 for her back-to-back garden design to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Chester choir A Handbag of Harmonies, of which she is a member.
Architect Howard was lead designer on the Q-CAT project, which was inspired by the group’s aim to end torture and complicity in torture.
Other winners at the show include a silver-gilt medal for Ness Botanic Gardens ‘A Taste of Ness’, designed by Phillippa Probert of Outer Spaces, and Reaseheath College’s ‘Nature Squared’, created by students.
