RHS Hampton Court Palace 2019

This year has been gorgeous weather for shows, and Hampton Court Palace was no exception. Sunny blue skies all the way. We got a lovely new gold medal for our display as well, so sunny times all around! Here’s a few photos of our display.

Pictured above are two popular plants Tiarella ‘Emerald Ellie’ and Heuchera ‘Tangerine Wave’.

Heuchera ‘Burgundy Bill’ is new this year, and we’ve still got some in stock! (just click the name to take you to the website). Beautiful large burgundy-red foliage, which glows bright in the sunlight. Pretty pure white flowers on tall burgundy-red stems great for cut flowers, show themselves well again the richer foliage. Bred by us to be hearty in British weather.

Some of our customer favourites are now back in stock on our website, along with some new plants. Here are just a few.

Heuchera ‘Sweet Caroline’ is easy to grow, with light pink flowers over lemon and lime foliage in Spring and Summer foliage changing to lime green later in summer then to lime with silver cast in Autumn and Winter

Heuchera ‘Paris’ is One of the ‘City Series’ of Heuchera grown for their great flowers as well as their foliage.

Silver veiling over green leaves, that have continuous columns of large deep rose coloured flowers.

A Few Awards at BBC Gardeners World Live

We were both shocked and extremely pleased to get not only one award, but THREE at this years BBC Gardeners World Live.

We started with a Platinum Award, then we won the ‘Geoff Hamilton Award’ for the Best display in the Floral marquee, and we then won the Best ‘Display of Summer Flowering Plants’.

We are absolutely over the moon and can’t thank everyone enough in both the shows and our lovely customers for all the support. You make it all worth doing!
