40 Sunbury Road takes shape ahead of RHS Chelsea Flower Show

Chelsea

The industry showcase exhibit ’40 Sunbury Road’ is gearing up to open to visitors at next week’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show, from 23-27 May.

The garden, put together by the Horticultural Trades Association (HTA) and The Association of Professional Landscapers (APL), is run in conjunction with Peter Seabrook and The Sun and is a celebration of Peter’s 40 years working at the newspaper.

APL member Bowood Landscapes has helped to build the garden, which features ideas and inspiration from a typical modest suburban back garden, and celebrates and promotes the vibrant and strong garden and landscape industry that we have in the UK.

Martin Simmons, HTA director of operations said: “40 Sunbury Road is a great collaboration which will showcase the UK horticulture industry at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. We hope that members maximise the opportunity provided by the week long TV coverage and wider media platform that the show provides.”

The 16m x 5m plot in the Great Marquee features plants and sundries from growers and suppliers all of which are available nationwide in UK garden centres.

The garden will include planted teapots grown by school children and dementia sufferers suggesting that anything can be used to bring fun and enjoyment into the garden. Westland Horticulture’s ‘Rising Stars’ have created specially planted containers, with the three Rising Stars themselves also being at the show on Thursday 25 May to tell the story of their container, which is based around the theme of ‘unusual containers’.

There is also a WonderWall – a living wall full of flowering plants and strawberries ready to pick as you pass by.

The garden will feature a number of new plants including five that have been entered for RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year; Mulberry Charlotte Russe (Suttons), Pelargonium PAC Spanish Wine Rose (Cramden Nursery), Betula pendula ‘Fastigiata Joes’ (Frank P Matthews), Lilly Sunset Joy (Pinetops Nurseries) and Strawberry Just Add Cream (Thompson & Morgan).

Member grown bedding and container plants will be on display, as well as trees, shrubs and other structural elements supplied by HTA and APL members.

Companies and brands from across the industry have joined together to contribute to 40 Sunbury Road including Aylett Nurseries, Armlee Nurseries, Ball Colegrave, Barcham, Benary, Big,  Cramden Nursery, Dobies, Double H Nurseries,  Eden, Evi loves you!, Fleuroselect, Floranova, Forest, Frank P Matthews, Genesis, Hozelock,  KADO, Majestic Trees, Myerscough College,  Neudorff, Pinetops, Plants for Europe, Quantil, Rolawn,  Seiont, Suttons, The David Colegrave Foundation, Thompson & Morgan, Westland, Wood BloX, WonderWall, Wyevale Nurseries amongst others.
