Chelsea Update 2019

November 22nd 2018

There is so much going on with our preparations for Chelsea 2019!!! We can't spill all the beans until the official announcement by the RHS which is happening very soon.

However we can tell you that we will be involved with 6 gardens, and we are working with some of the UK's best known garden designers on a diverse range of plants spanning the worlds flora!. All in preparation for that last week in May, with the worlds most exquisite horticultural event featuring some first time Chelsea sponsors. 2019 Chelsea is shaping up to very special indeed.

Our project managers Dave Root and Simon Littlewood Casan` have been scouring the UK, Europe and beyond to find the specific plants requested by the Chelsea designers, along with dropping below the equator into the Southern Hemisphere in this mammoth plant sourcing operation. The nursery is filling up fast, and our nursery manager Matt Paddock and his team are in a potting frenzy, making the most of the slightly milder temperatures accross the nursery.

We will have all of the perennials and smaller shrubs sourced and potted by the end of November. Then we start on the big stuff! We will be visiting various nurseries in both Northern and Southern Europe, usually with our clients accompanying us, to find those elusive Chelsea trees. 

Watch this space for the the next update, coming very soon!!
