Chris Beardshaw was only to pleased to lend his voice to the wonderful new film (seen to your left) announcing the exciting new garden bursary The English Garden Future Fund.
In the autumn of 2013, the editor of The English Garden received a surprising letter, explaining that an avid reader had left a considerable sum to the magazine in her will. After checking this was all in fact true and mulling over the best thing to do with the money, the team decided to pay it forward and use this wonderful gift to help promote horticulture.
Each year for at least the next five years, the magazine will award one recipient up to £5,000 to help fund or part-fund a project, initiative, event, product, idea, research or development. The scheme is open to individual amateur and professional gardeners as well as industry bodies and heritage, conservation and community gardening groups, non-profits and charities.
