Westland part of the container revolution at Chelsea Flower Show 2018
Westland Horticulture have joined forces with horticulturist, garden writer and RHS medal winner Peter Seabrook, to celebrate container gardening at this year’s prestigious Chelsea Flower Show. Having launched a new indoor plant care range this year, Westland Horticulture are delighted to be working in partnership with Peter to deliver an inspiring display of indoor plants. This popular area of gardening is accessible to everyone, no matter what level of experience they have.
Peter Seabrook’s ‘Container Revolution’ display is a pyramid of four sides, showcasing a number of flower and vegetable plants that can easily be grown in containers, both in the garden and the home. Designed around the key trends in indoor gardening, Westland Horticulture have collaborated with Peter to create an indoor plant display on one of the pyramid sides with a focus on air purifying plants, living walls, miniature gardens and edible gardens. Demonstrating an environmentally conscious theme the display also utilises a number of containers that have been re-used, recycled and up-cycled.
To ensure the display is looking at its best, all the indoor plants have been potted up in and fed with Westland Horticulture’s new indoor plant care range of compost and plant feeds. Jen Richardson, Brand Manager of Westland Horticulture said “We have designed our new indoor plant care range to help people grow strong and healthy plants that will thrive. Our composts feature a unique water storing granule that helps plants take up water, as and when they need it. The plant feeds range has been designed with specific nutrients for popular types of houseplants from peace lilies, cacti and succulents to bonsai, orchids and citrus.”
The display also features new seed varieties from Burpee including Chilli Pepper Lemon Dream and Tomato Patio Plum, great varieties that can be grown both indoors on the windowsill, as well as on the patio. The ever popular Strawberry Marshmello plants from Marshalls Seeds will also feature on the display, especially bred for flavour this variety is a favourite amongst gardeners every year.
Keith Nicholson, Marketing Director of Westland Horticulture said “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Peter Seabrook on his ‘Container Revolution’ display at Chelsea Flower Show this year, we believe container and indoor growing are key trends that are set to shape the future of gardening.”
