Things are blossoming at a Terrington St Clement grower, who scooped gold at the Chelsea Flower Show.

J A Collison supplied scented stocks for the M&S display, which received a gold award at the prestigious show.

The firm’s Diane Collison said: “It is a great honour and means that we are able to grow the quality of flowers to get to that level.

“We are very pleased and very honoured.”

J A Collison supplies cut flowers and is currently growing scented stocks, tulips and Asters.

The firm was established in 1994 but the Collison family has been farming at Tuxhill Farm since the 1960s.

The stocks on the M&S display were also admired by South West Norfolk MP Elizabeth Truss earlier this week.

The environment secretary said: “It is great to be at the Chelsea Flower Show supporting the UK flower industry with growers from Norfolk and the Fens supplying house hold names like Marks and Spencer.

“The Horticultural industry is worth £10 billion to the country so I am delighted to see more of our home grown plants on display.”

n Chelsea success was also enjoyed by Crane Garden Buildings, of Narborough. For the full story go to page 14.
