What’s on the 2013 Alitex Chelsea Flower Show stand MA10

Alitex at Chelsea Flower Show

We list everything on our stand, from the smallest flower to the accessories, which should help you identify what you have seen on the Alitex stand in 2013.

For any greenhouse or bespoke conservatory structural questions please do contact us. For more bespoke greenhouse ideas click here. If you like the Alitex canopy on the adjacent Gaze Burvill stand and would like more ideas click here.

External planting has been sourced from Hortis Loci, whilst internal planting has been grown and nurtured from seeds and cuttings by Thrive, the gardening charity which changes lives.

The design of the stand:

Taylor Tripp. (This is the 8th Chelsea we have worked together).

Hard landscaping:

Paving by Westminster Stone. The flags are “Cotswold Manor”, from their National Trust paving collection. Jacobean pavers complement the flags.

The bricks used on the base of the greenhouses are from Hansons and are the South Downs multi-brick.


Metallurgi have made the rear metal fencing, with a rusty woven appearance.


Bench and table by Gaze Burvill.

The powder coated aluminium pergola arch and trellis can be found in the Ulf Nordfjell collection along with a variety of pots in the bespoke greenhouse . (Ulf has designed the Laurent Perrier garden opposite our stand so we expect he will make frequent trips to MA10.)

The terracotta pots on either side of the rear bench and elsewhere on the stand are from Italian Terrace.

Thank you for visiting us at MA10.

We aim to provide a stand which showcases our glass and aluminium structures to the full and accordingly we enjoy our friendships and partnerships with a number of like-minded people and companies who share the same vision. Our thanks go to all the companies mentioned above for their involvement in the Alitex 2013 stand - not forgetting the Deacon Brothers builders who helped our team for the two week build.

We would also like to thank the National Trust and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew with whom we work closely.

* Thrive will be taking their plants back to Thrive Battersea where they may replant some of them in the herb garden and the others will be sold off during the Open Garden Squares weekend (June 8/9).
