The highly prestigious RHS Chelsea Flower Show was held for the first time ever in September this year and we were delighted to be both exhibiting and supporting six of the fabulous show gardens with our peat-free composts.


With sustainability at the heart of everything we do, we feel privileged to offer our support to the 

‘RHS COP26 Garden’ designed by Balston Agius:

‘In recognition of the UK hosting the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties in Glasgow in October and November, The RHS COP26 Garden demonstrates how gardens, plants and green spaces can play an integral part in protecting our planet and people and ensure a greener, more resilient future for us all.’ Read more here 

 

‘Balcony of Blooms’ by Alexandra Noble:
‘The Balcony of Blooms demonstrates that small spaces can be practical, productive and enchanting. Two trees provide a sense of enclosure, while a continuous green edge is planted with herbs for culinary and medicinal use, as well as with pollinator-friendly flowers.’ Read more here 

 

‘Arcadia’ by Martha Krempel:
‘Arcadia offers pure escape. The aged door becomes a portal between reality and fantasy and the notion of the infinite is played out with the painted backdrop, an idealised English landscape, which hints at the exotic with its red earth and boulders.’ Read more here 

 

‘Pop Street Garden’ by John McPherson:
‘Pop Street Garden is a space to jump-start the transition from ‘lockdown to on-the-town’. Taking inspiration from pop culture references including contemporary Pop Art and Street Art, this garden is bright, bold and playful.’ Read more here 

 

‘A Tranquil Space in the City’ by Mika Misawa
‘This garden for a city dweller seeking tranquillity is arranged with plants in pots and with fragments of nature, such as a boulder and gravel….Small details about this space are inspired by Japanese traditions, autumn seasonal celebration and a way of contemplating life.’ Read more here 

 

Finally ‘The Stolen Soul Garden’ by Anna Dabrowska-Jaudi
‘Human emotions are given form in this garden, which seeks to draw attention to ‘invisible’ mental health issues.

The living wall at the rear represents the dark scope of emotions such as fear, emptiness and despair, while the planting within the containers symbolises empathy, joy and light. The black water pool is a symbol of life and connects all the elements in the garden by reflecting them in the water.’ Read more here
