Gloucestershire florist Hans Haverkamp has wowed the judges at a national flower arranging show.
His entry in the ‘Indulgence – festive table’ class not only came first, he also won Best in Show and an award for his use of foliage.
Hans, who is based at Twyning, said: “I was so surprised to get first I didn’t hear I had won the show prize for Best Use of Foliage.”
The contest in Blackpool was organised by the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies as part of a festive flower and food show.
• Hans will be talking about Christmas flowers next month on The Chatty Gardener
