Hillier is hoping to secure a 69th consecutive Chelsea gold medal for its design which will reference some of the most significant elements of Hillier’s 150 year history recounted in the new book "Hillier: The Plants, The People, The Passion" by Jean Hillier.
It will also feature Hillier’s favourite plants, trees and previous award-winning Chelsea planting schemes, famous plant introductions and the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens.
Highlights include a 'valley' of Japanese maples inspired by Acer Valley in the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens, while a green and white garden will be included as tribute to gardens such as Sissinghurst in Kent.
In its 2014 exhibit, Hillier Nurseries will also showcase some of the hundreds of plants the nursery has successfully bred or introduced to commercial horticulture over the past 150 years.
Many, such as Choisya x dewitteana ‘Aztec Pearl’, Choisya dewittena ‘Aztec Gold’ and digitalis ‘Serendipity’, made their debut at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
Hillier managing director and Chelsea designer Andrew McIndoe will include a small garden in the design.
He said: "I believe this is something all visitors can relate to and I want it to demonstrate how to use Hillier plants to create a stunning small garden for all seasons."
