From the National Trust Chartwell (in Westerham, Kent) our wonderful friends - Donna and her team have carefully managed and grown all our plants in the The Scotney at MA9. Post show, they will be taken back to Chartwell and used in the gardens, or sold to make money for future projects.
We are very grateful to trade friends who have made our Scotney look so presentable and "show-fit."
The paving throughout the stand and The Scotney is supplied by Westminster Stone; the colour chosen is Chelsea Gold. Hansons Bricks supplied the base and is built using South Down multi bricks.
Hortus Loci have been wonderful supplying all our plants, trees and hedging. This is a great new nursery near Hook in Hampshire and is well worth a visit - it is about an hour from London.
National Trust Garden Sheds by Crane Sheds are represented on our stand with a Felbrigg (6' x 8') and painted in Wades Lantern. The retail price is £1,720.
National Trust Collection by Gaze Burvill is made in sweet chestnut, as it is versatile and flexible. Further information can be found on the Gaze Burvill stand (MA12).
As ever, and hopefully not sounding too much like a Miss World competition, we simply could not have done it on our own and without the support of these key people and suppliers. Thank you, the quality of your products matches the expectations we have for our glass houses.
