Miss Froggatt shows off the design for her RHS London Plant and Design Show next month. (“Chronicle” photo. 229/12).
By Tom Byrne A Brereton woman will add to her reputation as one of the country’s finest young garden designers when she takes part in her second national flower show in less than a year.
Alexandra Froggatt, (25), of Smethwick Lane, has been invited to design an alleyway-themed garden at the RHS London Plant and Design Show on 14th and 15th February.
She is one of only two young garden designers to e invited to the show, after winning a silver gilt medal for coming second in the RHS Young Designer of the Year Award at Tatton Flower Show in July.
Her innovative garden design addressed flooding and extensive rainfall and featured a garden planted with flood-tolerant species that act as the front line of defence.
The aim of the design to be judged at the London show is to turn an unloved and seemingly unsuitable alleyway between houses into a “beautiful green oasis”.
Miss Froggatt has had one meeting in London to discuss plans for her design and is busy putting the finishing touches to it at her Brereton base. She estimates that it will take another three weeks to finish the garden, before she transports the materials to the show around three days before it begins.
Miss Froggatt said: “I got asked after the Tatton Flower Show in July. I’m really pleased, because they only asked two people.
“I started designing the garden in the autumn and it’s quite a challenging theme. Basically, the organisers give us a brief and it is up to us to come up with something suitable for that. So I’ve been busy designing it and coming up with ideas.”
She added: “The whole idea for this one is to show that you can have a garden in a small space, like an alleyway. It’s between brick walls so it will look authentic.
“Pre-fabrication started on Monday and we will finish everything before transporting things down to London. That should be about three days before the show, to leave enough time to set everything up.”
Miss Froggatt set up her company Azalea garden design a year and a half ago, having completed a biology degree at Sheffield University.
It seems hard to believe now, but the talented garden designer stumbled into her career by accident. After university, she volunteered for the conservation wildlife trust in Sheffield and was offered garden maintenance job to supplement it.
Having enjoyed that so much, she moved back to Cheshire and set up her own company Azalea Garden Design.

ADVERTISER'S FEATURE THE DOGFATHER
AVOIDING DOG ON DOG AGGRESSION
Syd, my little pup, is now out and about as I introduce him to the world. He’s exceedingly cute and other owners want to bring their dog over, however boisterous its ehaviour, to say hello.
This is not something I allow.
If Syd gets bowled over now by a large, excited dog I’ll have a problem.
Dog on dog aggression has grown dramatically over recent years and accounts for more than half of my behaviour calls.
My first question whenever I receive a complaint of this nature is to ask if the owner has any other dogs. If the answer is yes I ask if they play together, already knowing the answer.
It’s this so-called play that is the root cause of dog on dog aggression. Look closely and you’ll find that they are neck biting or wrestling each other into a submissive belly-up posture. It’s only a question of time before this excited behaviour results in aggression and it’s all so easily avoided.
If puppies grow up understanding that the appropriate behaviour in the company of other dogs is to ignore them, owners would never have any aggression problems.
Puppies should be supervised whenever they are around other dogs. They must be discouraged from jumping, nipping or interfering in any way with other dogs. When not supervised they should be in a crate, kennel or some other place where they cannot antagonise other dogs.
Older dogs soon grow tired of boisterous puppies and will push them away with a show of aggression but sorting out the pack is not their responsibility. It’s yours. As leader, you must step in and let the pack know what behaviour is and is not acceptable.
Puppies must not annoy older dogs and older dogs must leave all discipline issues to you or face the consequences (from you). Leaving dogs to sort out their differences is a recipe for disaster.
