Bowled over by the numbers! Great Comp welcomes record visitors at the weekend’s Summer Show

Great Comp Garden welcomed record numbers of visitors to their two day Summer Show at the weekend, with 3200 people streaming through the garden gates of the 17th century manor house in Platt, Sevenoaks. The annual show, celebrating its 13th year, doubled its usual number and broke the record from last year’s show for visitor numbers in a single day.

Curator of the 7 acre garden William Dyson said: “On this special weekend for cricket, we were bowled over by the response from visitors to our Summer Show.  We had close to 40 exhibitors and 3200 people onsite over the two day festival dedicated to plants, art and garden ornamentation.  Strings & Things quintet played wonderful jazz on the lawn and a lot of unusual and beautiful plants were exhibited. All in all it was a perfect summer weekend and we’d like to thank our wonderful exhibitors for putting on such a phenomenal display, we need to thank our group of volunteers for their steadfast work and finally we want to thank the 3200 visitors who made it such a special weekend and helped us break all records!”

The Hardy Plant Society Kent Group were onsite showcasing their RHS Silver Gilt medal awarded to them at this year’s RHS Chelsea for their exhibit ‘Over The Garden Gate’.    Colin Moat, Chairman of Great Comp Trustees and an active member of the Hardy Plant Society (HPS) Kent group proudly displayed the HPS medal and his own silver medal won previously by Pineview Plants, his independent nursery in Wrotham.  Other RHS medal winners onsite included Dairy Roots nursery from Hertford and William Dyson, Great Comp’s curator.

Great Comp Garden have invited many of the exhibitors over the weekend to return for their Autumn Extravaganza on October 10th/11th.
