Plants and pets rarely go together but Monty the Duck is the exception. He’s the mascot of Heucheraholics and makes a regular appearance on their show stands.
“He’s the first mascot we got and there are now about 30 of them,” explains Sean Atkinson of the specialist heuchera nursery.
Some have been left by the team who put together the show stands and there’s always one somewhere, even at Chelsea where mascots are frowned upon.
“We hide them at Chelsea and the judges know they are somewhere but they can’t find them.”
