Bartholomew Landscaping will be teaming up with Stoke-on-Trent again to create one of the top 12 showcase gardens at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, the prestigious horticultural annual event.
The 2014 RHS Chelsea show garden “Positively Stoke-on-Trent” is being designed and built by top London based company Bartholomew Landscaping in partnership with Stoke-on-Trent City Council – the same team that delivered last year’s roaring success, winning a Silver medal on their debut with their ‘Transformation garden’.
The “Positively Stoke-on-Trent” garden will represent a city with a new clarity of purpose and new sources of energy. The garden’s clear lines, circuits, solar panels and high-tech materials, reflect the technological revolution. The glass pavilion reflects water, earth and air: the city’s emerging sustainable energy ambitions. The planting is inspired by nature’s re-colonisation of Stoke-on-Trent, reconnecting the city to nature and will convey the message that Stoke-on-Trent is a dynamic and creative place of opportunity for all.
Barry Burrows, Managing director of Bartholomew Landscaping comments: “I am thrilled that Bartholomew Landscaping are back at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show for 2014 creating the Positively Stoke-on-Trent Garden. To scale the horticultural peak that is Chelsea with a superb and dedicated team behind me is one of gardening’s great challenges and one we are fully embracing in 2014. We are going for gold!”
