Not just Olympians win Gold!

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is a great landmark event in the horticultural calendar. Whilst Chelsea is open to the public for only 1 week in May, the designing and planning is going on now. Activities reach their peak in the build week before the show with teams working from early morning until late into the evening to get their projects looking perfect.
In 2016 Kingcombe Aquacare provided support to Hillier Nurseries to help win their 71st consecutive Gold medal for their garden “Spring Time”, designed by Sarah Eberle. The water feature provided a dramatic back drop for the fabulous planting scheme on the stand in the Great Pavilion.

We also worked with Sarah on her own “Mekong Garden” for her sponsors Viking Cruises which also won a Gold Medal and was voted “Best Artisan Garden”

So with two Golds for 2016 we are looking forward to working with Sarah and Hilliers again, and are also talking to another major sponsor on Central Avenue about their water features for the 2017 event.
