She Grows Veg at the Chelsea Flower Show! With a Gold Medal Award!

Chelsea Flower Show 24 – The Round Up

Wow!  Where do we begin on sharing our Chelsea news with you!  We are over the moon to say that we won a gold medal in our very first year exhibiting.  We had the most incredible response from the judges and the public alike. 

On press day Raymond Blanc cooked his wonderful Pistou Soup recipe in the frame which was loved by all!

Our ‘Edimental’ exhibit was inspired by Renaissance painters’ portrayals of beautiful fruit and veg.  We had 10 antique gilt frames on our display with different curations of vegetables in groupings by colour.  Our approach has never been seen before at Chelsea, where traditional veg displays have been in situ for years.

Alongside our main display we had a veg adorned selfie frame – a giant gilt frame that members of the public could step into with a veg crown on their heads and have their photo taken.  We welcomed thousands of visitors and even some famous faces into the frame over the week.

We were proud to donate our spare plants to a fantastic initiative called Re-Use that rehomes plants to community projects, schools and charities to ensure nothing went to waste!

Huge thanks to Raymond Blanc and the team at Le Manoir for their amazing support, to Hazel Gardiner our Floral Designer, Sophie Powell the florist who created our flower crowns and Jon Wheatley our mentor.

If you missed us at Chelsea, don’t worry, we will be at Hampton Court Garden festival 2-7th July.  Out exhibit will feature the same frames plus our brilliant selfie frame, plus our seeds will be for sale with some show deals!
