Silver-Gilt at Chelsea 2012
This year Fleming’s Nurseries showcased another medal winning garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in the UK. Jason Hodges, head of Greenart Gardens also better known for his gardening segments on Better Homes and Gardens designed a spacious and functional garden specifically designed for living and entertaining outdoors. There are lots of things to love about this garden, and I’m not just talking about our Lump treats. In particular we love the grand illusion of space created by the large sections of lawn which until recently have been a thing of the past. The design also includes sandstone from Eco Outdoors that is constructed into walls reminiscent of the piers of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and a lounge area that includes a 4m long dining table, a wood fire pizza oven AND a bbq. To the left of the garden there is a spa adjoining a large pavilion, here on the sandstone wall you can see our Lump Kangaroo Paw Light Feature Panel in a very stylish offset position. And in the front garden nestled amongst a typically warm, tropical plant palette sits a family of delicate Lump Leaf Skeleton Sculptures. The team this year was awarded a Silver – Gilt medal for their efforts and unfortunately Her Royal Majesty didn’t make it to the garden, but “The Chelsea Experience” as Wes would say is the true gold of Chelsea. A big congratulations to everyone involved.
