A FLOWER grower who specifically cultivates elatum delphiniums took home a spread of wins with his prize specimens.

Nurseryman Graham Austin grows the flowers, which can reach up to nine feet tall, at Home Farm off Shantock Lane in Bovingdon.

The 44-year-old has entered his flowers into the Delphinium Society’s annual show at RHS Wisley for the last four years, winning best in show last year.

This year Graham took home four firsts and five seconds for his entries in 12 classes.

He said: “I love taking part, and I’m always pleased with how I’ve done. If you can get a first at a national show then you can’t complain.”

Graham grows his delphiniums full time. Visit www.homefarmplants.co.uk for more
