19th Gold Medal for Dibley's at Chelsea Flower Show. Award winning North Wales based Dibley's Nursery, have won their 19th RHS Gold Medal to add to their extensive collection! This makes Dibleys the most successful Welsh nursery to ever exhibit at the show! Lynne Dibley said "This is our 20th Chelsea Flower Show and this year the response from the judges was overwhelmingly positive. We work very hard all year on new introductions and travel the country attending flower shows. A gold medal at Chelsea really is the culmination of all of that hard work. To win an RHS Gold is just the icing on the cake. Our display this year is quite different from previous years but it goes to show that one doesn't always have to stick to tradition to win a gold medal"
Around 250 streptocarpus and begonia plants grace the stand in the floral pavilion but Streptocarpus 'Alissa' is looking like the star turn! The first commercial yellow Streptocarpus ever seen at Chelsea, this variety has been bred on the nursery and is the result of over eleven years of specific breeding to achieve this colour. Yellow is a recessive gene in Streptocarpus so this has been the holy grail of Streptocarpus breeding for many years. 'Alissa' is named after Lynne's 11 year old niece.
The other two new plants are Streptocarpus 'Rebecca' and Streptocarpus 'Targa'.
