THE family who run Stone nursery Hooksgreen Herbs are celebrating after scooping a gold medal at the Chelsea Flower Show.

The Dickson family, who run the business in Old Road, impressed judges with a Peter Rabbit Herb Garden, based on the Beatrix Potter character, in the floral marquee.

It was designed by gold medal garden designer Richard Lucas, with Hooksgreen growing and planting all the herbs.

Thomas Dickson, from Hooksgreen, said: "We are delighted. This is our first gold medal. We have exhibited at Chelsea for the last four years and have previously won silver so this is our best yet.
