A mother and son team will be among the designers creating a Beautiful Border at BBC Gardeners’ World Live.

Garden designers, Cheryl Sibley and her son Luke, 25, of Wharf Cottage, can expect over 100,000 people to see their garden over the four days of the show at The NEC in June.

The 25-year-old said: “It is really nice to be involved in the event and it is great to see parts of my design involved.

“I have been doing this for four years now and my mum has been doing it for eight.

“I love designing gardens and it is nice working outside.”

The theme for this year’s border is Industrial Heritage Of The West Midlands.

The design that secured Luke and Cheryl there place at BBC Gardeners’ World Live was A Glass Act.

Luke added: “The inspiration for A Glass Act stems from the glass industry based in the Stourbridge region of the West Midlands.

“The Stourbridge area is recognised for producing some of the finest glass in the world.

“However, due to the effects of globalisation the industry in the region has almost been obliterated.

“Our garden shows the use of glass in a modern medium as a recycled mulch and waterfall.

“This will be used to represent water in an ornamental pond and showcase alternative uses for glass.”

The family gardening business, Sibley Gardening Solutions, offer a complete garden service, from the design, to the build and the long term maintenance.
