Inspiration from RHS Hampton Court Flower Show 2013 – Part 5

2 Written by Lisa on 12th Jul 2013 in Inspiration

So far I’ve featured the show gardens that inspired me this year, but today I wanted to mention the exhibitors who make up a large portion of the show.  Hampton Court Flower Show has a different vibe to Chelsea and there’s lots you can buy and take away with you, especially from the Country Living Marquee which is full of gorgeous things from art to clothes to jewellery and handmade cosmetics.

At each of the RHS shows, the show stands are often spectacular.  Some are like show gardens, planned out by garden designers and built by experienced contractors.  Like the show gardens, each of the show stands is judged and, if appropriate, awarded a certificate.

This year one of my landscapers, Scott Hadley, built the show stand for Alitex who produce beautiful bespoke aluminium Victorian greenhouses and conservatories.  They have also developed a range with The National Trust

The stand was awarded Best Trade Stand in Show – huge congratulations to all who were involved!

The Alitex Trophy!

This year Alitex teamed up with Sparsholt College to provide an aspiring horticulturist with the chance to create a garden at the worlds largest flower show. The winning design was from a garden design student, Alice Wrightson, who created a garden that demonstrates the full range of possibilities for greenhouse owners, using ornamental vegetables and beautiful roses.

    Thank you for such positivity…We were delighted to win best trade stand at the show, given it was our first time not sharing a stand with the National Trust Garden Collection – and we also had a great week meeting so many people who appreciated what we have been doing for 60 years. You are very welcome to come along to our show site near Petersfield to find out more!

    Your award was very well deserved and even better that you had a great show too! Would love to visit your show site at some point in the future…
