Fallen Fruits sees Hillier Chelsea bench success

Garden giftware company Fallen Fruits has seen a "rush" of trade orders for its Old Rectory bench after it was featured in Hilliers' gold medal winning Chelsea garden.

The Fallen Fruits Old Rectory bench is made of mild steel and painted with a cream or green finish.  Hillier used the cream version as the feature piece.

Hillier purchasing head Andrew West said the company would be ordering a "significant amount" and Michael Hall of Fallen Fruits added that other retailers had followed suit as a result of the product’s popularity at the show.

The Old Rectory bench is part of the Old Rectory collection of Victorian- style painted garden furniture, which also includes arches, arbours, plant stands, tables, chairs obelisks, a tree seat and an etagere.  RRPs start from £2.49 for a small wall hook up to £900 for a gazebo.
