Flowers and plants promoting the island of Grenada have scooped the silver-gilt medal at the Chelsea Flower Show.

Suzanne Gaywood, 64, of The Street, Woodham Walter, moved from Grenada when she was 17.

She has entered the Royal Chelsea Flower Show for 25 years and has won sixteen medals.

She said: “We just missed gold this year with our entry ‘Spice Isle’.

“It’s not competing against the other exhibits, it’s achieving a standard of excellence."

Mrs Gaywood is part of a team of eight, with husband Peter, 71, and neighbours Dave and Jane Weedon, Brian and Sue Cumming and Ivor and Gill Brearley.

She also has growers based on the island.
