Rosy Hardy


Rosy Hardy is the driving force behind Hardy Cottage Garden Plants her taste in plants is reflected throughout the nursery, each plant variety has to perform well to be able to earn its place on the nursery and in our catalogue.  Rosy is always on the lookout for new and interesting plants that will keep our customers coming back to the nursery for more.

Exhibiting at Chelsea and Hampton Court Palace Flower Shows

Each of Rosy's displays could be described as an impromptu and unique work of art, produced during the build up to each show. Only the bare bones of the display are decided pre-show, such as the shape of the display and where the pathways are going to be placed.

Rosy's brave use of colour produces beautiful displays time and time again, inspiring people to be adventurous with colour in their own gardens. Each display is carefully put together to reflect actual planting situations for that season, so that you can transport her planting combinations to your own garden.

Her designs revolve around the site and soil that each plant requires to thrive. This straight forward approach has been rewarded with an impressive number of RHS Chelsea Gold Medals and the additional accolade of being the most successful individual female exhibitor.

Rosy Hardy is a member of the RHS Herbaceous Committee
