Unwins very own Nikki Hargreaves really went that extra mile this summer, putting Unwins products through their paces at her local Morton and Hanthorpe Annual Street Fair, an event that has a special place in Nikki’s heart.
Unwins Category Manager and Live Goods Buyer, Nikki Hargreaves says; “Every year my village has a Village Show where everyone comes along to showcase their wonderful growing, baking, cooking and creative skills.
She reminisces: “When I was a child growing up in rural Lincolnshire, I remember my parents entering their fare and I recall the buzz that seemed to surround this wondrous event.
“30 years ago when the Unwins catalogue would come through the door, we’d rush excitedly to go through it as a family so we could choose bulbs ready to plant for the show. It makes me smile to think that I now work for Unwins.”
Using products from our Unwins catalogue, Nikki took 1st place with her Dahlia Semi-Cactus Mercator in the Single Flower category after it had been the talking point of the village all summer, as well as winning the Gladioli category with a Gladioli Nova Lux. Nikki also took 2nd place in the Garden Flower Arrangement category using Dahlia Pooh, Dahlia Tamburo and the Lily Flore Pleno.
Unwins want to give Nikki a big congratulations on her resounding success and look forward to seeing what she can do next year.
