A JAPANESE garden designed for the new Bury Hospice has an award at the RHS flower show at Tatton Park.

It won a gold medal in the large garden category of the show, which started today and runs until Sunday.

One part is a Japanese-style garden with rocks, gravel, pruned trees and lanterns, while the other is more “English” with a lawn, decorative shrubs and different ornaments.

The Japanese Garden Society was commissioned by the hospice to create a garden.

Volunteers from the society will reuse all the materials and plants in the show to make a larger version of the Japanese garden at the hospice in Rochdale Old Road, Bury.
