Many of you will remember the redoubtable horticulturist, friend, mentor and Senior Heart of England Judge Stan Gardner.
Sadly Stan passed away a few days ago after suffering several falls.
He brought a wealth of experience, wit and advice to Bloom and although he has been retired from judging for several years he will be missed.
A funeral service is due to take place at Robin Hood crematorium, Hall Green, Birmingham
Thursday 3rd May at 2pm
