A GLENROTHES man has been plucked from 19,000 colleagues to get his green-fingers busy at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Scott Fraser (23), who works at Homebase, will be assisting Homebase garden designer and multi-gold medal winning Adam Frost at this year’s prestigious centenary event.

“It is going to be a great experience,” said Scott.

“I’m really looking forward to working with Adam and being able to bring back some tips to tell my store colleagues and customers.”

The garden, ‘Sowing the Seeds of Change’, has been created in association with Alzheimer’s Society, the official charity partner of Homebase.

Scott will be working with Adam to bring to life a modern family garden that has been designed to encourage visitors to engage with nature and enjoy an environment where they can garden, relax and entertain.

The father-of-one, who lives in the Pitcoudie area, became interested in gardening thanks to his grandparents.

He explained he loves gardening because it’s a relaxing activity and he sees the garden as a retreat.

Furthermore, his grandma is a big fan of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and to be given the opportunity to go where his grandma always wanted to visit, means a lot to him.

Scott was nominated by regional manager Brenda Wilson for his high level of horticultural knowledge and his commitment to the garden centre customers at the Glenrothes store.

Brenda said: “This is a fabulous opportunity for Scott to be part of such as prestigious and world-renowned event such as the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.”
