RHS Chelsea – BALI proves to be ‘Blooming Marvelous!’

It’s the biggest horticultural event in Britain and the world’s largest flower show. Attracting celebrities and royalty time and time again, It can only be one thing; the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

The 2013 event marks the centenary of the Chelsea Flower Show so it’s going to be extra-special.

Every year the grounds of the Royal Hospital are transformed into show gardens, inspirational small gardens and vibrant horticultural displays for the world’s most famous flower show.

The Chelsea Flower Show is attended by 157,000 visitors each year and has become an important venue for watching emerging gardening trends. New plants are launched and the popularity of older varieties revived. It’s the garden design equivalent of Paris Fashion Week.

We were delighted to be approached by BALI (the British Association of Landscape Industries) to provide an eye-catching surface for the organisation’s display area at the iconic show. A bespoke colour was developed especially for this show garden, a glistening silver crushed glass surface which we called ‘BALI Bloom’.

The show opened to the press on Monday with the BALI stand being awarded a certificate of commendation by the judges on the first day!

This is the second year in a row that our surfaces have been incorporated into show gardens and received commendations and awards. Last year, we were part of a design that took the Gold.

Tickets to attend the show are still available and can be bought by clicking here

Make sure you visit stand FR36 to see our dazzling surface in BALI’s beautiful stand! You will also get to meet one of our team; Hugh Haines who will be at the show on Thursday.
