Blooming Spectacular!

We were delighted to be back at a flower show after such a long break! We were honoured to be hosted by our good friends Griffin Glasshouse at the Hampton Court Flower Show on their beautiful stand. Our Octagonal Fountain added a soothing sound for visitors as they admired the glasshouses and the beautiful flowers inside them. But, this isn’t the only flower show of the year as we have Chelsea to look forward to in September! And the flowers will be very different at the this time of year – exciting!

Our fountain added a soothing tranquility to the beautiful Griffin stand at Hampton Court.

We adapted our Octagonal Planter to transform it into a fountain. We can do this with many of our products, just ask.

Friends together again at Chelsea

The Chelsea Flower Show runs from the 21st to 26th September this year. We’ll be back with Griffin Glasshouses again on their gorgeous stand. Our General Manager, Steve, will be available so please come and say hello.

The Return of Chelsea flower show

The RHS Chelsea Flower show will be held in September for the first time in history, we’re excited to see some fresh new looks and perspectives at this year. We are expecting a very different array of flowers, there is an opportunity for some shop stopping dahlias along with a wealth of eco friendly garden inspiration. We are expecting a strong focus on biodiversity and environmentally friendly horticulture.

 

Amazing flower displays are expected at Chelsea

Gardens Have Never Been So Valued

Since the pandemic, it’s been clear to everyone that gardens and outdoor spaces have become more important to us than ever. Our customers have invested in their gardens to create a sanctuary with plants, patios, water features and more.

Spectacular landscape project, packed with handcrafted Chilstone.

While not everyone has the space for such grand garden designs, there’s always inspiration from Chelsea that can be adapted to your own back garden. Whether that’s hard landscaping, colour schemes or new plants.

Chelsea Trends

It is becoming clear to anyone who spends time in nature that now is the time to focus on biodiversity and environmental issues if we want to avoid future climate catastrophes. We predict this message to be at the core of this year’s Chelsea flower show and expect to see many British plants and native wildflowers as a result.

Veronica is a native plant that thrives in a range of conditions,

Think sweeping wildflower meadows, walls climbing with greenery (and plenty of flower walls too- vertical growing as well as horizontal is sure to increase much needed green spaces) and re-wilded spaces. But with hotter temperatures there will be also be more drought tolerant plants.
