Hartley Botanic’s Tropical Britain tradestand wins Best in Show at RHS Chatsworth

tropical

British greenhouse and glasshouse manufacturer Hartley Botanic has been awarded the best tradestand accolade at RHS Chatsworth Flower for its Tropical Britain tradestand. For 80 years, Hartley Botanic has been making its beautiful, handcrafted greenhouses and glasshouses. Key to the Lancashire manufacturer’s success has been its single-minded focus on customer service and its ability to respond to changing trends and tastes amongst gardeners.

At RHS Chatsworth this year, Hartley Botanic’s tradestand reflects the business’ ability to tap-into gardeners’ latest greenhouse preferences with a ‘tropical Britain’-themed stand which showcases some of modern ways gardeners are using and enjoying this most historic of garden structure. The Hartley Botanic tradestand has been designed and planted by landscape and garden maintenance company Base Squared. The best in show tradestand award came after the manufacturer was awarded 5* by the Royal Horticultural Society.

Hartley Botanic’s RHS Chatsworth tradestand features four of the manufacturer’s handmade greenhouses and glasshouses, a modern Opus glasshouse, a Victorian Lodge, a traditional Grow and Store and a contemporary Hartley Planthouse, each illustrating modern greenhouse ownership trends. The stand also features a special edition Hartley Botanic Patio Glasshouse in ‘ruby red’ to mark the manufacturer’s 80th anniversary. The overall look of the stand is a contemporary one, with a Victorian presence, with clean lines provided by light grey paving and green, leafy external plantings, interjected by deep, grey earthenware and glazed pots.

Of the tradestand Tom Barry, managing director of Hartley Botanic commented: “We are thrilled to have received the best tradestand award at RHS Chatsworth this year – in a year when we are already incredibly proud that our greenhouses and glasshouses have been gracing the nation’s gardens for an impressive 80 years. While its interesting to look back, it is also exciting to look forward and this stand is a celebration of some of the ways customers are enjoying our greenhouses and glasshouses today. While we may be a historic British business, our products are constantly evolving and so is the way gardeners are using them.”

Thomas Hearn, director at Base Squared added: “We wanted the stand to communicate how greenhouses and glasshouses are really an extension to peoples’ homes, personal passions and personalities to an extent. What gardeners are now able to grow has evolved incredibly over the last 80 years and this has allowed gardeners to be even more specific about what they chose to grow and how they make use of their greenhouses and glasshouses.”
