Flower Shows 2018 focusing on Instant Hedges
Congratulations to everyone at the June Flower Shows, Practicality Brown proudly supplied instant hedges to:
- The Brewin Dolphin Installation designed by Paul Hervey-Brookes won People’s Choice at RHS Chatsworth Flower Show
- Inspiration in the Raw designed by Peter Cowell awarded Gold Medal at BBC Gardeners’ World Live
Inspired by a past landscape of the Chatsworth Estate, this conceptual garden echoes a ‘lost’ village that once stood in the shadow of Chatsworth House before being removed to make way for Capability Brown’s famous landscape. The planting references the indigenous landscape combining native plants with decorative varieties introduced in later years.
The garden focuses on using natural materials to create a more peaceful area to live in the garden. With an emphasis on recycling and reusing materials, this garden caters for a family, the garden is divided into sections by sliding barn doors. At the rear of the garden there is a dedicated play area with rope swing and playhouse, meanwhile, parents can entertain in the free-form concrete seating and dining area or relax in a quiet corner.
This garden was awarded a Gold Medal by the judges at the BBC Gardeners’ World Live. We supplied Practical Instant Native Mix Hedge for this garden.
At RHS Hampton Court, we are supported three out of the four Lifestyle Gardens, as well as a trade exhibit.
- The Entertaining Garden designed by Anca Panait
- The Family Garden designed by Lilly Gomm
- The Health and Wellbeing Garden designed by Alexandra Noble
And Paul Richardson’s Garden Steel Sculptures – see blog here for more details

Congratulations to Papworth Trust on Silver Gilt medal
A wonderful acoustic garden, a first at Chelsea, was created in the artisan garden section of this prestigious show. The Silver Gilt medal is a superb achievement for the team behind the #TogetherWeCan garden! Well done to everyone involved including Peter Eustance, Papworth Trust, Dame Evelyn Glennie andLandform. We supplied Holly instant hedge as part of the naturalistic planting.
Beech Instant Hedge providing maturity on a new development
A new build development in Gloucestershire gained immediate maturity by the installation of Elveden Instant Hedge; we supplied and installed 36 metres Beech Instant Hedge for a construction company at Cirencester, Gloucestershire.
Compared to a traditional size hedge transplants, our unique Elveden Instant Hedge products provides immediate maturity. Beech is good hedge for year round seasonally variable interest; it holds onto its bronze autumnal leaves well throughout winter, thereby providing adequate winter screening, despite being deciduous, in the spring the leaves emerge a bright glossy green. It is a very traditional English hedge and remains one of our best sellers.
