What a year  – 2011 – Our first Chelsea Gold Medal and a 3 minute TV interview with Pam Ayres on prime time TV. That may not seem long 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.

Pam Ayres chatting to Linda from Waterside Nursery at Chelsea 2011 on planting her pond to encourage more wildlife creatures to visit her garden and how to help them 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 that she could imagine people taking with them if they were to move house. What a lovely chat we had! See and hear the interview on our media page.
