As a follower of Alitex, we would love to hear your thoughts on our brand new greenhouse colour for Chelsea 2014.
We are showcasing "Bronze," at The Chelsea Flower Show this year, which is a darker shade of grey with sparkling amber metallic elements which bounce light around. The colour would look at home in any kind of garden setting - I can visualise it surrounded by burnished leaves and vibrant planting of whatever hue - reds/oranges or the strong purple blue of the Himalayan Geranium "Johnson's Blue".
This year we are displaying two greenhouses; the Scotney from the National Trust Greenhouse Collection in a smaller urban setting and an inspirational all-singing, all-dancing Messenger bespoke glasshouse structure.
It's been a full on two weeks of building, getting the stand show ready and the transformation never ceases to amaze! You may have followed our progress on twitter- certainly next week we will be bringing you our news from the show on all our social media channels.
Come and join us on our stand (MA10) for a refreshing drink and a sit down.
Let's hope the weather does as it's told - the assembly team on the show ground have been taking shelter from storms and rain all week! We have been featuring Peloton Pete in various guises around the site, in a bid to raise awareness for our fundraising which centres on a mammoth cycle challenge in July.
