Turf companies bag multiple medals at Chelsea 2010

It was a good year for turf companies at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show as Rolawn helped secure 23 medals while Lindum landscaping products featured on four award winning gardens and stands.

A record 11 gold medal winners used Rolawn products including the company’s medallion turf and blended loam topsoil.

Rolawn sales and marketing director Cedric McMillan said: The fact that so many industry leading garden designers and specialist growers choose Rolawn is an accolade in itself as we are very aware of the extraordinarily high standards expected. We feel very proud to have played our part and are delighted with their success.

The Rolawn medal winners included:

Winchester Growers (Gold), Bloms Bulbs (Gold), Blackmore & Langdon (Gold), Burncoose Nurseries (Gold), Granada (Gold), Harkness Roses (Gold), The Children’s Society (Gold), Tourism Malaysia (Gold), M & G Garden (Gold), Cancer Research UK (Gold), The unexpected Gardener (Gold & Best Urban garden), Foreign and Colonial Investments’ (Silver Gilt), Kebony – Naturally Norway (Silver Gilt), L’Occitane Garden (Silver Gilt), Easigrass Garden (Silver Guilt), Naturally Fashionable (Silver Guilt), Birmingham City Council Help for Heroes (Silver Flora), University of Worcester (Silver Flora), Eden Project - Places of Change (Silver), Bradstones Biodiversity (Silver), Morrisons Let’s Grow to Chelsea (Bronze Flora), Dyslexia - A Barrier to Education (Bronze) and the Stephen Hawking for Motor Neurone Disease Garden (Bronze).

Lindum’s specialist landscaping products, including wildflower meadow turf and wildflower & sedum mat helped four Chelsea exhibitors gain Silver medals and an Outstanding Presentation of Stand award.

They included the Global Stone Bee Friendly Plants Garden, the Growing World Class Talent garden, Active and Healthy Gateshead exhibit and the Oceans and Home Garden which also won the trophy for outstanding presentation of stand.
