Show stand set to showcase British flowers and fruit

The NFU and Waitrose have teamed up to wow visitors with the best of British produce at three RHS displays.

First is the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, on 24-28 May, where the NFU has previously won 14 Gold Medals.

The stand, Waitrose and the NFU: Championing British, will rely on home-grown produce and flowers. Designer Penny Riley will recreate the display at BBC Gardeners' World Live from 15 to 19 June and Hampton Court Palace Flower Show from 5 to 10 July.

NFU head of food and farming Phil Hudson said: "Our presence at the shows has always provided a fantastic opportunity to highlight to visitors the huge range and quality of British produce and we look forward to seeing what our talented designer comes up with this year."

Waitrose buying manager for horticulture Sue Steptoe added: "We are delighted to be working with the NFU to showcase the fantastic produce that our country has to offer."
