Fordingbridge supplies Hillier RHS Chelsea Flower Show structure

The dominant structural feature of this month's Hillier exhibit at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show will be a five tonne steel and iroko pavilion from manufacturer Fordingbridge.

Fordingbridge have also built the decking and the two hardwood boardwalks for the Sarah Eberle-designed exhibit.

Hillier wholesale and retail director Chris Francis said: "Hillier has forged a close working relationship with Fordingbridge over the past 40 years, and we knew their pioneering, innovative  approach made them the right people to entrust with such a high profile project. We recently   commissioned Fordingbridge to design and install the spectacular timber and fabric canopies in   each of our 12 Hillier garden centres, which have directly contributed to the dramatic transformation of our garden centre business and the customer experience in  store."
