If you have ever wondered what happens to the gardens at the Chelsea Flower Show, our expert gardener Jason is seen here busily replanting the lovely Whitebeams that bordered The Chilstone Garden at the Chelsea Flower Show.

The Whitebeams were a very popular feature of the garden as the colour of the leaves attracted a lot of attention. The tree's sparse canopy allowed sunlight to play over  the garden with a bewitching dappled effect. We were often asked how tall these trees will grow and shall have to wait and see! (Our expert thinks they will double in height).

An adaption of The Chilstone Garden will be created at our showgardens (it will need to be adapted to work in the new space) and we hope that it will give pleasure for many years to come.
