PLANT nursery owners are overjoyed after being presented with an award by a royal.

Southfield Nurseries, of Bourne Road, Morton, won ‘best in show’ for an exhibition of cacti at the Spring Gardening Show at Malvern.

They received their award from the Duke of Gloucester on Friday, May 13.

Linda Goodey and her husband Bryan, who own the nursery, are absolutely delighted with their achievement.

Mrs Goodey said: “We are really pleased. We always try our best but you never know how it is going to go.

“We had about 200 cacti in our display of all different shapes and sizes.”

They also appeared on BBC’s Gardeners’ World television programme which Mrs Goodey said was really exciting for them.

She said: “This was aired on Friday last week too. It was a very good experience for us.”

There has been a mini display of cacti at the nursery similar to the one at the show since Saturday, open for 10 days.

This will be open for another few days for anyone interested in going to have a look from 10am until 4pm.
