RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2019
And just like that another year at RHS Chelsea flower show is done but what a busy couple of weeks leading up to the show we had and we didn't even building a garden! With our very own Paul Willavoys loading up the work van and heading to Chelsea and back almost every day.
We've been fortunate enough to be able to lend our support to so many great designers and builders over the duration of this years show; Some of which we have supported for years, other of which are new to the Landscapeplus family. We however can't take all the credit as we have had our own support from our wonderful suppliers such as Gordon Low, Oase, Collingwood, Claber, and Ortus Lights.
We thought it would be nice to provide an overview of each garden with an idea of what products we supplied to each.
