Tony, who is a member of the council’s Green Spaces Team, won the Stroud in Bloom Cup.
His work include designing and planting the rainbow flower bed at the bottom of Cornhill and the rainbow effect cartwheel in Park Gardens. The themes of this year’s Stroud in Bloom were colours of the rainbow.
A member of the Green Spaces Team for three years Tony has more than 30 years’ gardening experience. He has worked for the National Trust, the Forestry Commission and Cotswold Water Park.
He said he was surprised by his award from the Stroud in Bloom Committee. “This is the first award I have ever won,” he said.
“Tony is an outstanding gardener and we are proud to have him on our team. He deserves this recognition for his hard work,” said Jim Mathison.
