The 2015 RHS Hampton Court Flower Show saw the first alliance between Hedges Direct and Chic Teak, a top designer and manufacturer of quality teak outdoor and garden furniture. This was then followed by a second collaboration for the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park.
Chic Teak put together a trade stand for the two RHS shows to display their premium garden furniture and, with the help of our Instant Hornbeam hedging and Box Topiary shapes, managed to create a life-like garden. Several other BALI members were involved in supplying Chic Teak with materials, and specialist florist, Robie Flowers, added a touch of beauty with their striking centre pieces for the outdoor tables.
The Chic Teak trade stand received a Tradestand Award at both RHS Shows; a 3 Star Tradestand Award at RHS Hampton Court, and after taking on feedback from the judges, more Hornbeam instant screens were added to the display, resulting in a 4 Star Tradestand Award at RHS Tatton Park.
June Pearce, Director of Hedges Direct, said: “We’re always keen to work with other BALI members and industry experts, especially for events as prestigious as the RHS Shows. Coming together to create exhibitions as marvellous as the Chic Teak stand just proves how the right collaboration can have fantastic results for all parties involved.”
“After visiting the stand and seeing our hedging and topiary first-hand at the exhibition, we’d be delighted to work with Chic Teak again in the future, as the hedging plants and furniture seem to wonderfully complement each other, allowing visitors to really envisage the products in their own garden.”
Instant hedging and topiary were a big trend at this year’s Tatton Park event, with numerous designers using instant hedging to create a canvas for their show garden, and Topiary shapes decorating a variety of different stands.
Hedges Direct are thrilled to have contributed to an award winning stand and look forward to future collaborations.
