Chelsea 2018 Round up and a big thank you to everyone for their support!

That’s it folks for another year!

A huge thank you to EVERYONE who supported us and came to see us!

 

Here are our best bits!

Kew Fountain

We received so many compliments about our classic Kew Fountain , standing as the centrepiece of our stand.

A Water Feature for Every Space

So many people said they love our classic Kew fountain, but some people said they didn’t have a large enough garden. We make lots of fountains from the Richmond, which is similar to the Kew, but 37cm smaller and still beautiful to wall mounted  for water features in a more compact space. Whatever size your garden is, our staff can advise on the best fountain from our range.

Chilstone’s Richmond Fountain is a smaller style for those who like the Kew fountain but have a smaller space in their gardens.

 

For those with large spaces or hotels, We also make the Laskett fountain or the enormous Oxford fountain, for turning circles in large driveways or as a major statement piece. The Oxford fountain takes five people to make it!

The Mythology that Launched a Thousand – Statues!

Ok, not a thousand, but the Greek Mythology about Helen of Troy has inspired two Chilstone statues, Leda and the Swan launched at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2017 and this year’s The Birth of Helen, designed and made by Admir Sljvic.

We also launched Aquila the eagle on our stand at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show. A life like sculpture, also made by our talented in sculptor in residence.

Three Cheers for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex

Back in November Prince Harry made our Kensington planters world famous as he announced his engagement to Meghan Markle between four of them to the world’s media. As a thank you for boosting our sales we engraved a pair of planters on our stand with their new titles. We hope the royal couple have a very happy life together.

It’s All About the FLOWERS!!!!

We know that the main event at every Chelsea Flower Show are the flowers. We know that’s what all the visitors love.

This year it was all about the lupins! More lupins than an Monty Python sketch could cope with! But they were beautiful.
