The summer flowering bulbs selling season has now come to an end. The Dahlia Cuttings are still available to order and will be sent in May, subject to prevailing weather conditions. The P&P for Dahlia Cuttings is £6.75. The Dahlia Cuttings can only be sent to UK Mainland addresses due to the requirement to have next day delivery by courier. Five Year Diaries, Gift Tokens, Gardening Gloves, Snowdrop Cards and Seeds are also available to order and they will be processed and despatched within a few days.
IT'S SHOW TIME. We are now entering a very busy time on the show circuit and will be at the Harrogate Spring Flower Show (23rd -26th April), Toby Buckland's Garden Festival at Powderham (2nd-3rd May) and the RHS Malvern Spring Festival (7th-10th May). Next comes the major show of the year, the RHS Chelsea Flower Show (19th-23rd May) which is followed by the BBC Gardeners' World Live show in Birmingham (11th-14th June) and our show season rounds off with the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show (30th June - 4th July)
We were very happy to be awarded a Gold Medal for our exhibit at the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show and were pleased that the Gladiolus Flevo Laguna on the stand was highlighted in the TV coverage by Joe Swift. We hope that everyone who who visited the show had an enjoyable time.
The Avon Bulbs Stand at RHS Hampton Court 2014
The Avon Bulbs Stand at BBC Gardeners' World Live 2014
We were very pleased to be awarded a Gold Medal for our stand at the BBC Gardeners' World Live Show at the NEC in Birmingham. The exhibit was dominated by dreamy whites and pinks provided by Orlaya grandiflora and Ornithogalum magnum and several varieties of Iberis punctuated by purple and lilac Alliums, cerise Ixias and blue Triteleia Rudy and Corrina.
Our Chelsea stand impressed the judges who awarded us our 27th Gold Medal at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. We also had many complements from members of the public. Our plants were a wonderful selection of spring flowering bulbs with the tulips provide a wide range of exuberant colours with purple Ixia, Gladioli and Alliums offering differing shapes and rich purples, Lilies, Ornithogalum and Convallaria offer white and green flowers to quieten down the louder colours. Some interesting and unusual annual and biennial plants complemented the bulbs and enhanced the display. The famous Chelsea Sell Off started, as usual, at 4pm on the final day and within a matter of minutes, there was very little remaining of our pretty stand.
