ANGLESEY champion vegetable grower Medwyn Williams has struck gold once again at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Medwyn has been absent from the world-renowned show for the past nine years having already won 11 consecutive golds.

His twelfth gold at this year's show is an achievement that has never been realised with vegetables before.

Medwyn's pristine display features his ubiquitous giant leeks, parsnips and the first tomato variety with an official Welsh name Y Ddraig Goch (The Red Dragon), which has been registered with the Animal and Plant Health Agency.

Medwyn's winning stand proudly flies the Welsh flag and a Welsh dragon carved from vegetables in honour of the Y Ddraig Goch, a F1 hybrid tomato.

His Grand Pavilion display has attracted attention from journalists, celebrities and VIP guests including Clare Balding and David Seaman.

In the eight months leading up to the show Medwyn, who grows his award winning produce at greenhouses near Dwyran, worked with his sponsors CANNA, to develop the biggest and best vegetables possible.

Medwyn said: “Chelsea is horticultural Olympic Games, so to achieve a gold medal upon my return means a lot to me and makes the months of hard work worth it.”

Other highlights on the stand include another new tomato variety with a Welsh connection, the ‘Maisey’ which is named after tomato grower Charles Maisey and a miniature okra. The Baby Bubba is only half the size of regular okra plants but boasts a hefty crop of fruit.

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show runs from Tuesday, May 21 – Saturday, 25 May.
