Kelways has revealed details of the Somerset grower's Chelsea Flower Show plans. 

In 2013, Kelways helped ten designers with their show garden plants and for 2014 they are signed up to source and grow for seven show gardens, including Charlotte Rowe’s garden for the Army Benevolent Fund and Sarah Eberle’s Fresh Garden for Italian fashion house Gucci.
Meanwhile plans are taking shape for director Dave Root’s 50 square metre, four sectional stand in the great marquee.

The exhibit will showcase peony, iris and tree peony plants. New for 2014 will be a selection of intersectional hybrid peonies which are a cross between tree peonies and herbaceous peonies. 
Besides the show circuit, Kelways has been involved in sourcing and growing around 4,000 plants for ‘the indoor garden in the sky’, 200m up at 20 Fenchurch Street, London, also known as the Walkie Talkie Building. 

Root has been sourcing and growing Jurassic type Cycads and NZ tree ferns and Mediterranean plants for the project. 

Other large commissions for Kelways include growing for a  new visitor centre for Bombay Sapphire and for the landscape above the new Cross Rail station in Canary Wharf.
