Hardy's Cottage Garden Plants unveils plans for RHS Chelsea 2011 exhibit

Hardy's Cottage Garden Plants' owner Rosemary Hardy has unveiled plans for the nursery's exhibit at this year's RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Hardy’s RHS Chelsea 2011 exhibit, in collaboration with Westland Horticulture, will feature two walk-through pathways leading to a central display area, featuring differing heights of hedging and planting, a water rill and full sized trees.

The nursery will exhibit various plants including hardy Geranium, Maianthemum, various Salvias, Verbascums, Cirsiums, Angelicas and the new Anemone ‘wild swan’.

Nursery owner Robert Hardy said on the partnership with Westland Horticulture: 

"It’s great to be working with a horticultural company as they understand what it takes to produce these exhibits and it’s also great synergy for us to be in a partnership with Westland Horticulture as we actually use their products and they are of course is no small part responsible for the quality of our plants."

Westland Horticulture PR manager Nicola Bacon said:  "This is a perfect collaboration to highlight the long running association between Westland and Hardy’s."

The nursery is also busy growing plants for RHS show gardens including Flemings Nurseries’ Australian show garden, Sarah Eberle’s garden for the Principality of Monaco and Kate Gould Gardens’ urban garden for the Magistrates Association.
