HTA applies for second RHS Chelsea Flower Show garden

The HTA wants to repeat the horticulture industry garden at Chelsea 2017.

The industry showcase garden, in the plant pavilion, is in association with Peter Seabrook and Sunflower Square, as it was in 2016, and will feature a hanging basket garden, Rising Stars garden centre staff garden, schools garden, seed company garden and another garden similar to the one by Lovania in 2016.

At Glee trade show next week at Birmingham NEC (September 11-12), the HTA is launching an Academy of online learning modules, similar to the GCA and Wyevale Garden Centres, and a revamped Garden Retail Monitor, to benchmark garden centres via Epos data. The Academy will begin with plant care and visual merchandising modules.

Of other Chelsea gardens, James Basson is designing for the Daily Telegraph.

Farm of the World could also be involved.
