My Highlights from Day 1 – Grand Designs Live

What a fantastic first day at Grand Designs Live Birmingham.  There are many familiar exhibitors but a wealth of new products and designs to get to know.

The highlight for me today was the Garden Designer of the year competition.  This year, applicants were tasked with the challenge of creating ‘The Urban Kitchen Garden’ showing an ‘outdoor space that is both practical and stylish’.  Our great friend Liz Ackerley @PoppyheadC had entered the competition and the amazing news is that she WON!! Congratulations Liz you really deserved it your garden is stunning.
