Big RHS Chelsea 2016 Announcement!
Saturday, December 12, 2015
We actually let the cat out of the bag about this extremely exciting news live on BBC Radio Kent (Click the link to listen in to the show- we're on at 1 hour 35 minutes in) For those of you who didn't catch our GM Steve talking about our involvement in this years Chelsea Flower Show, we've got huge news for you! We are so very pleased to announce our involvement with a spectacular show garden sponsored by Meningitis Now. We cannot convey how proud we are to be working alongside the talented garden designer John Everiss (who took our breath away with his WW2 Evaders garden at RHS Chelsea last year- do you remember our blog about it?), Peter Gregory Landscapes and Andrew Loudon on an absolutely incredible show Garden; Meningitis Now Futures Garden. The Meningitis Now garden is inspired by the impact the disease has on families and the changes they go through as a result, with dramatic sculptures, a beautiful Cotswolds garden atmosphere and a powerful message that will truly hit home, this garden is so special, and definitely one to see at RHS Chelsea 2016. We're very pleased to show you the first drawing of the garden!
Artists representation of the Meningitis Now Futures GardenThe garden is being designed to celebrate the Meningitis Now charity's 30 year anniversary and to raise much needed awareness about the disease and it's impact...
“The garden will celebrate the courage, determination and positive outlook of people who have faced up to, and overcome, the consequences of this devastating disease. We’re thrilled to have this opportunity to showcase meningitis in this dramatic way and to raise awareness of the disease and our work combating it to the millions of people who visit Chelsea and watch it on television. We look forward to working closely with John as his vision for the garden materialises.”- Sue Davie, Chief Executive, Meningitis Now. We're busily working away on prototypes and will be keeping you informed at every stage of the journey. We will be giving more info on the garden right here soon.
