We are delighted to be returning to RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show on 3 July in partnership with Chewton Glen. Chewton Glen is a five-star quintessentially English, luxury Country House Hotel & Spa, located on the fringe of the New Forest.
Chewton Glen will be designing and growing all of the planting for the stand, to create an idyllic display of home-grown vegetables, fruits and herbs. The theme will be an inspirational edible garden consisting of beds and borders bursting with flavours and colours. Chewton Glen's Estate Manager, Darren Venables, has been working hard to grow an extensive range of kales, chards, mixed herbs and edible flowers. Inside the greenhouse you will find a multitude of chilli peppers, micro tomatoes and herbs to entice your senses. The inspiration behind the planting comes from their working garden at their cookery school, The Kitchen.
Also featured on our stand will be several bespoke wire sculptures, handmade by Rupert Till. Again, these sculptures reflect the kitchen garden at Chewton Glen, where a collection of farmyard animals are on display, located around the Alitex greenhouse.
