Pam Ayres meets Waterside Nursery

Pam Ayres meets Waterside Nursery

What a year - 2011 - Our first Chelsea Flower Show Gold Medal. Wow! For a small family run business that was huge.

Followed by a 3 minute BBC TV interview with Pam Ayres. That may not seem a long time to all of you but it was mega in its effect. When it was repeated on the Sunday highlights programme we just couldn't believe it. Our year took off!

Pam Ayres chatted to Linda from Waterside Nursery at Chelsea 2011 about planting her pond to encourage more wildlife creatures to visit her garden and how to help both to survive and flourish.

She also fell in love with our container ponds which she instantly named "portable ponds' (in that wonderful accent of hers) and she said that she could imagine people taking them with them if they were to move house. What a lovely chat we had!

See and hear it here.
