When I found out I was a finalist in the RHS school gardener of the year I was in shock! It was a shock getting through over lots of other children and was a great feeling. We visited RHS Wisley for the award ceremony, it was a lovely day. I was a bit nervous waiting with the other finalists,. When they called my name to go and receive my engraved trowel and certificate it was a bit scary but it was a great experience and meeting Frances Tophill was wonderful.We also had a tour of RHS Wisley which is a stunning place. Sharing the day with my mom and dad and my friend was lovely and also having Ben there to share day the with was great, knowing without him I would not of been there. Thanks Ben!
