COLLEGE students are celebrating after impressing judges at one of the largest horticultural shows in the country.

Askham Bryan College students won a host of awards at the Harrogate Spring Flower Show thanks to their imaginative and creative design featuring more than 1,000 flowers around and on a car bonnet.

The display was given a Gold award on the opening day of the show which started on Thursday and runs until Sunday.

Kate Pepper, senior lecturer in floristry said: “To win a gold medal at what is one of Britain's top flower shows is a wonderful achievement. The students deserve success, they have worked hard researching the design and planning the display as well as putting it all together."
