A PERSHORE company will compete in this year's BBC Gardeners' World Live.

Keyscape Gardens has been selected as one of the five landscape contractors and garden designers.

Each of the contenders have been tasked with creating an inspirational, aspirational but relatable garden at the show, which is held at the NEC in Birmingham this June.

The Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) will be on hand for visitors with advice on costs and options.

Keyscape Gardens’ entry is designed by Martyn Wilson, who is hoping to win the Best APL Avenue Show Garden award.

His garden is aimed at young professional couples in terrace properties, featuring terraced socialising areas, a wood burner and a log store, the garden creates privacy with areas to relax in after a busy day.

The Show Garden Assessment Panel, which includes RHS Chelsea Flower Show TV host Wesley Kerr OBE, alongside a public vote, will decide who takes home the accolade of Best APL Avenue Show Garden.

Rupert Keys, managing director at Keyscape Gardens, said: “We are very excited to be returning to BBC Gardeners World Live and working with Martyn Wilson to create a modern contemporary garden.

“We want to showcase our skills and expertise and hope everybody enjoys our ‘Breath of Fresh Air’ garden”.

Bob Sweet, horticultural director of BBC Gardeners’ World Live, said: “We have no doubt that each of the five finalists will offer visitors of the Show a great deal of take-home ideas, whilst showcasing what incredible designers and landscapers they are in their own right.”

BBC Gardeners’ World Live takes place from Thursday June 14 to Sunday June 17 at the NEC. Tickets are available at www.bbcgardenersworldlive.com
