Forget the Olympic Torch Relay, Fermoys’ RHS Chelsea Flower Show Wheelie B Relay was just as dramatic – and even more exhausting!
Alan Murdoch, the director of Fermoys Garden Centre, pedalled from the garden centre in Exeter to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show to raise money for the Greenfingers and Gardening Leave charities. He stopped at garden centres along the way, and was supported in his mammoth cycle ride by Miracle-Gro staff, friends and colleagues in the gardening trade.
The journey started at Fermoys with Scotts’ Trade Marketing Manager, Jane Hartley, supplying the pedal power at the rear.
Wheelie B Competition
Every year, Fermoys Garden Centre organises a Wheelie B Competition, in which local schools compete to grow and design the best vegetable plants to display in a wheelbarrow. This is a great way to inspire future generations to get into gardening.
This year, Fermoys went one step further in an effort to support the wider gardening community. Alan Murdoch bravely decided to cycle all the way from Exeter to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show with the winning barrow in tow!
Scotts Miracle-Gro supported Alan Murdoch in his epic mission, by playing an exciting game of ‘follow my leader’, as one of our Miracle-Gro vans followed Alan the whole way. We helped him with supplies and gave him that extra boost of moral support.
