Avon Bulbs gets Gold at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2015 !
The Chelsea display was gorgeously planted with textured patterns of flower, form and leaf and varied vistas provided by a path that snaked around two giant stainless steel "Seedheads" sculptures loaned to us by Ruth Moilliet. Shortlisted by the judges for consideration for the Best Exhibit in the Marquee our stand at Chelsea this year seems from all accounts to have been pretty outstanding. The curving path through the display allowed people to see right into the centre but was at the same time less formal. Particular plants that many visitors commented on included the lily flowered Tulipa Sanne in pink and pale orange, the new Camassia Maybelle (which flowers naturally so late it nearly missed the show and its entry into the Chelsea Plant of the Year), and also a lovely display of Convallaria majalis rosea (the pink Lily of the Valley). The Lunaria Cheglow also showed itself off well with the pale purple Allium Gladiator and the crimson Gladiolus byzantinus.
We were very pleased to have been awarded a Gold Medal for the innovative exhibit at the RHS Malvern Spring Festival and were delighted to have it featured on the BBC Gardeners' World programme from Malvern. The stand reflected the huge range of bulbs that we can deliver to you by post or courier whether you live in the UK or in other parts of the EU. It also highlighted the variety of ways there are to order the bulbs whether it is by post, by telephone or online. The garden sculpture of the Seedheads was kindly loaned to us for the show by Ruth Moilliet -www.ruthmoilliet.com
