A new event in the RHS calendar and in a spectacular setting in the grounds of Chatsworth House, we were privileged to be able to display our mature trees at the RHS Chatsworth Flower Show this month (7-11 June 2017). A fantastic opportunity to meet so many garden enthusiasts at once, we really enjoyed the experience plus there was a superb array of stalls, stands and displays of interest.
We were greeted by a healthy amount of visitors to have a look at our larger trees in containers, with some faces we knew and some we were meeting for the first time. Topics on people’s lips were hedge planting and mature tree planting – both of which we could cater for. Our Cornus Kousa ‘Milky Way’ shrub was a real head-turner and drew a large amount of interest from those passing by.
The UK weather threw everything at us – rain, high winds and a fair spattering of sunshine – but overall, the UK horticultural world shone brightly – particularly those designers and landscapers who created some stunning gardens. We would also like to extend our hearty congratulations to Lee Bestall for winning a Silver Gilt for his excellent planting scheme, too.
