Hartley Botanic to showcase wellness focused tradestand
English Greenhouse and Glasshouse manufacturer Hartley Botanic is to showcase a wellness focused tradestand at the 2019 RHS Chelsea Flower Show to demonstrate how a Glasshouse can greatly extend and personalise the ways in which a garden can promote wellbeing.
Designed by Valentina Wyatt of Valentina Wyatt Garden Design, landscaped by RHS Chelsea veterans Stewart Landscape Construction and dressed with furniture and accessories from carefully chosen suppliers, including Graham and Green and Stoake, the stand will feature four of the Lancashire manufacturers custom and handmade Greenhouses and Glasshouses.
Each structure will showcase different ways you can use and customise your own. In addition, the stand includes eco themes and collaborations with interesting suppliers, craftspeople and individuals to further bring the wellness vignettes to life.
Stand designer Valentina is looking forward to her first time designing at Chelsea: “After 15 years of designing gardens in the London and Cambridge area, I’m loving the challenge. I think one of the skills of a good garden designer is to help bring the potential of our outdoor spaces to life and this is an important aim for the Hartley Botanic stand. I want to make sure it really fires-up the imaginations of those who see the stand, demonstrating the horticultural and lifestyle value of these most beautiful of garden structures.”
Tom Barry, Managing Director of Hartley Botanic points out that owning a Hartley Botanic Greenhouse or Glasshouse opens up a world of opportunities for gardeners: “Clearly, they offer incredible growing potential, but they can also greatly enhance our lifestyles and allow us to enjoy our gardens in a much richer way,” he said.
Hartley Botanic has been exhibiting at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show since the 1950s and last year their stand was awarded the 5 star award and the Director General Linley award for its ‘provenance and history‘ theme.
Earlier this year, Hartley Botanic announced that they will partner with the RHS to support their 2019 ‘School Gardeners of the Year‘ competition. Winners of the RHS School Gardening Team of the Year will receive a handmade Hartley Botanic Greenhouse or Glasshouse of their choice while individual winners of the Young School Gardener of the Year and the School Champion of the Year will receive a Hartley Botanic patio Glasshouse.
