RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2019

Thank you to everyone that came and saw us on our stand at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. If you brought seeds, do not forget to check out Jekkapedia for our tips on sowing, growing and eating your herbs.

We were delighted to have supplied a number of award winning gardens at this years' RHS Chelsea Flower Show. We supported three golds, a silver gilt and a silver medal.

Some pictures of the show gardens can be seen below;
Our Stand at the Chelsea Flower Show, showing off our new illustrated seed packets, seed collections, mugs, herbal infusions and tea towels. All of which will be available from our shop at the Open Days.
The Resilience Garden by Sarah Eberle - Gold. Celebrating the Forestry Commission’s centenary, the garden looks ahead to the challenges facing forests of the future. It explores how our woodlands can be made resilient to a changing climate and the increasing threats of pests and diseases.
The Art of Viking Garden by Paul Harvey Brookes - Gold. A multi-layered wetland habitat - is reminiscent of a water meadow, open and inviting with multi-stem river birches and winding streams running through the space. Water is a key element of the design and a signature feature of Viking's RHS Show Gardens.
Kampo no Niwa by Kazuto Kashiwakura and Miki Sato - Gold. Designed for a practitioner of Kampo, a system of Japanese herbal medicine, this is a garden that celebrates the route to health and happiness through plants.
The Wedgwood Garden by Jo Thompson - Silver Gilt. A stone pavilion forms the main structural element, while a sunken garden displays artefacts reflecting the antiquities that inspired some of Wedgwood’s first designs. 
IKEA and Tom Dixon: Gardening will save the world - Silver. Set over two levels, this stepped garden explored growing edibles in an urban setting, this is the view from the top.
