A FLORIST in Taunton is celebrating two staff winning gold at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show.

Charlotte Murrant, 23, and Lisa Fowler, 34, of Eden Florists, progressed through regional heats in the junior and senior section for the chance to compete at the show and they didn’t disappoint.

Their stunning floral design dresses clearly caught people’s attention as Charlotte bagged a gold medal in the Young Florist of the Year category while Lisa was awarded 'Best in Show' making her Chelsea Florist of the Year 2014.

Jane Cowling, owner of Eden Florists, said: “I couldn't be more proud and am completely blown away with the girls achievements at the show. A Chelsea Gold Medal is seen as the highest award in floristry so for Eden to have two is amazing.

“The girls both have a huge amount of talent and have put so much work into their dresses. They are absolutely beautiful. It is wonderful to say ‘The Chelsea Florist of the Year’ is from Taunton."

Charlotte said: "It feels amazing to have won a gold medal at Chelsea. It's an honour just to qualify and compete at the show. To win a gold medal is something I have always dreamed of and I will treasure it forever."

Lisa said: "It still seems unbelievable. The standard was so high and I never ever thought I would be the one to win and become the Chelsea Florist of the Year."

The dresses can be found on display in the Eden Florists shop, St James' Street.
