Hartley Botanic has unveiled a new 14m octagonal glasshouse to form the centre piece of the RHS’s new edible gardens at RHS Hyde Hall in Essex.
The commission unveiling comes after Hartley Botanic was named the RHS’ recommended aluminium greenhouse and glasshouse supplier in February.
Meanwhile, Thompson & Morgan are in discussions to relocate trials onto what was the old vegetable garden at Hyde Hall.
The trials were held for many years at Poplar Lane near Ipswich but closed in 2011. They then moved to TV’s Jimmy Doherty’s farm, also near Ipswich in 2015, showing 1,000 containers. They attracted 5,000 people to open days.
In 2016, T&M had a pumpkin grown at Hyde Hall after buying a seed for a record £1,250.
