Success at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2018

Alitex at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2018

Last week was certainly the highlight of the horticultural calendar as we spent our days enjoying the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Main Avenue was bustling with energy as people browsed the show gardens and neighbouring displays.

We were pleased to receive a 5 Star Award, the highest accolade, for this year's trade stand, and we'd like to say a big thank you to everyone that helped make it beautiful. An extra special thank you to Jake Curley, our extremely talented Garden Designer, and Sims Hilditch luxury interior Design experts - we couldn't have wished for a better team to spend the week with.

If you were at Chelsea, we hope you popped by the Pennard Plants stand to see our new panel based traditional greenhouse, complemented by a Riverside Shepherd's hut. An impressive display inspired by Mark Diacono's books - the garden was filled with wildflowers, tomatoes, herbs, rhubarb and even watermelons. A highlight had to be Mark sharing his infamous cocktails at the beginning of the week - homemade citrus cello enhanced with prosecco!

If you visited us at Chelsea you would have seen our neighbour's stand, Gaze Burvill. Their hand crafted oak furniture and kitchens, suited for outdoors, were beautiful and eye catching, winning the Best Trade Stand Award. We're pleased to announce that we'll be working with them at RHS Chatsworth Flower Show, just a week away!
