The Haddon Road home sponsored the award-winning designer’s floral exhibition – which proved a popular attraction for the thousands of visitors who flocked to the annual event.


Jonathan was the expert floral judge on BBC2’s Big Allotment Challenge and is currently in residence at Chatsworth House, producing arrangements for the Duke and Duchess.


Following the Bakewell Show, he donated three of his arrangements to the care home and now plans to help residents design a sensory garden for those living with dementia.

Carl J D Fisher, home manager of Burton Closes Hall Care Home, said: “The Bakewell Show was a huge success and we were delighted to take part for the third year in a row.


“It was amazing to watch Jonathan work on his stunning displays and we are absolutely thrilled he chose to donate several to the care home.


“His generous offer to visit the home and design a sensory garden for our residents really topped of an amazing few days at another fantastic show.
