Hortus Loci reveals plant line-up for RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2015

Hortus Loci is growing 30,000 plants for four show gardens at the 2015 RHS Chelsea Flower Show.


Members of the public can get the ‘Chelsea look’ as soon as the show opens on 19 May at Whitewater Plant Centre, the retail wing of Hortus Loci and located on the same site, and from where the firm will be selling all of the key plants from the four show gardens.

Matthew Keighley, designer of the Sentebale Garden, The Rich Brothers for Cloudy Bay, Gavin McWilliam and Andrew Wilson for Wellington College and Royal Bank of Canada by Matthew Wilson complete the quartet of Hortus Loci show gardens for 2015.

The Wellington College Garden planting is ordered by squares of clipped beech through which the various uniforms and flags will be represented in flower colours. 

Pleached squares of beech – a native tree to the Waterloo area, partially enclose the garden and provide screening but also a sense of repetition found in the colonnades of the various Wellington College quadrangles.

The Rich Brothers have chosen a colour palate of rust, rose and browns with more than 3,500 plants being grown specially for them.

Matthew Wilson's RBC garden will feature some large trees of Mediterranean origin such as olives, pomegranates and Quercus suber.

The Sentebale Garden includes more than 6,500 plants are being grown by Hortus Loci.
