At 200 square metres, Hartley Botanic’s trade stand at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show will be one of the largest and most ambitious in its category. The stand, which has been designed by Longview Design, will be built by The Outdoor Room with plants sourced by Burford Garden Company.
The stand itself will feature exotic and hardy plants from around the world which will add beautiful texture as well as help lead visitors around the exhibit. Key themes for both the external plantings and those within the greenhouses and glasshouses is a love and passion for plants and visitors’ sensory experience – especially as they visit each unique greenhouse. The stand is in a prominent location next to the Great Pavilion and show gardens on Main Avenue which, along with the stand’s ambitious plant displays, will help to attract visitors.
Longview Design and The Outdoor Room were chosen by Hartley Botanic to design and build the stand because of their RHS Chelsea credentials, having created award-winning show gardens for the last 10 years and being deemed worthy to create three gardens at the show this year. The exhibit represents the first trade stand for the Sussex-based design team whose USP is to create designs which are entirely client focussed, staying as closely as possible to each client’s unique style and objectives. The beautifully designed and unusual plantings set to grace the stand have all been sourced and supplied by Cotswolds-based home and garden company Burford Garden Company.
