Gurrets to tackle Chelsea Flower Show
A mother-and-daughter team are to compete at a world-renowned garden show in England.
Floral artist Nicky Gurret and her daughter, Camille Chin-Gurret, will put together their first joint project for the Chelsea Flower Show in London.
Ms Gurret, a 12-year veteran of the flower show, and her daughter are entering the two-person flower arranging event at the May show.
They visited Keukenhof in the Netherlands, one of the largest flower gardens in the world, for inspiration.
Camille, a budding flower designer, said that the show would be the most prestigious gardening event she has entered.
The 19-year-old has entered other floral design competitions, including two World Association of flower arranging shows and picked up second place at one of the events.
She has also come first several times in her age bracket for the Flower Arranging category of the Bermuda Agricultural Exhibition.
She said: “I am so excited to see the Chelsea Flower Show, which I have heard so much about.”
Her mother has won six medals for five pieces she entered at the Chelsea Flower Show.
She has also won several shows organised by the UK’s National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies and exhibited work at six World Association of Flower Arrangers shows.
The Chelsea Flower Show, officially called the Great Spring Show, is considered one of the most prestigious garden shows in the world.
The garden show is held in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea and more than 200,000 visitors are expected to attend from May 21 to 25.
