Given it’s Chelsea Flower Show this week, it reminded me just how marvellous our Faux Flowers are and that we now have a wonderful Flower Lookbook on our new website. Page after page of inspiring pictures that perfectly illustrate just how realistic these blooms are.
We’ve exhibited at Chelsea a few times now and on the last occasion won a Silver Gilt medal for our presentation. Taking part is indeed an honour and undoubtedly one of the highlights of our career. There is no place like it.
It is such a privilege to witness the creation of those amazing show gardens from scratch, star-gazing as the glitterati visit on Press Day, watching the judges and the eager anticipation of the medals and then rather sadly, at the conclusion of the show, the almost brutal destruction of the gardens as the Royal Hospital is returned to its former glory. The latter reminds you all over again what an amazing spectacle you have just been a very small part of..
Closer to home, if it’s award-winning blooms you’re after, then take a peek at the Flower Lookbook – from Hortensia (Hydrangea Hortensis) to Herbs (Ocimum Basilicum and Mentha), Gerbera (Gerbera Jamesonii) to Geraniums (Pelargoneum) – they’re all there in peak condition.
