Woodlodge, the UK’s leading supplier of garden planters and containers is celebrating after the two exhibits it contributed to at the world-famous RHS Chelsea Flower Show (May 22 – 26 2018) won prestigious medals.
The Sun’s Container Revolution Garden in the Grand Pavilion at Chelsea – the brainchild of renowned garden writer and broadcaster, Peter Seabrook – won a Silver Gilt medal after impressing the judges. Focussing on the ease and maintenance of container gardening, this stunning garden demonstrates how pots of show-stopping plants and foliage can brighten up an outdoor space, no matter how small.
A wide range of Woodlodge pots made their home on The Sun’s Container Revolution Garden, including designs from the Duxton,Rustic Garden, Chelsea Terrace and Heritage Garden ranges. Utilising a variety of shapes and sizes – square planters, cylinders and rectangular troughs, and made from materials such as terracotta, slate, and lightweight fibreclay – the pots are displayed to best demonstrate how groups of pots can make a homeowners’ container plants look more attractive, as well as change the mood and feel of a garden.
At the show the containers are overflowing with a wide range of flowers sourced by Peter and the industry’s top growers, breeders, as well as plants grown by school children and colleges. The Sun’s exhibit is also home to the Chelsea Plant of the Year winner, Hydrangea hybrid Runaway Bride ‘Snow White’ by Thompson and Morgan.
Woodlodge also appear in The Discovery Zone on the Horticultural Trades Association’s exhibit ‘The Great Escape’ which received a Bronze medal. Designed by horticulturist and ex Blue Peter gardener, Chris Collins, the exhibit aims to educate people of all ages on how to enjoy their outdoor space as a place for relaxing, growing, playing and engaging with nature.
Woodlodge’s terracotta ranges Sahal Cinnamon and Dill, Viking, Genoa and Bavaria from the Duxton collection are all on show on the interactive exhibit. The Rustic Garden Collection also features showcasing the diversity of the Woodlodge portfolio.
Woodlodge Managing Director, Michael Wooldridge said: “We are delighted by the recognition that each exhibit has received. All of the plants showcased in Woodlodge pots, demonstrate how easy it is to transform an outdoor space. There is no doubt that Chelsea, with its extensive media coverage, including primetime TV, plays a great part in enthusing people to give gardening a go and we hope it encourages the public to get out into their gardens over the bank holiday weekend and create some show-stopping container displays. ”
