As WowGrass is part of the collection of the Lindum Seeded Turf vast and specialist product offering, it’s only natural to support and share in their successes.
May in particular was full of excitement for the team, here at Lindum HQ as we embarked on our first stand exhibiting at The RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Alongside hitting a record number of clients that we supply our products to.
The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is a show platform like no other, held in the ground of the Royal Hospital Chelsea, home to the iconic Chelsea Pensioners. Garden designers spend all year planning, prepping and selecting the finest materials for their show gardens with impressive attention to detail. Right down to the Cow Pat (Supplier by Lindum) strategically placed on the “Welcome to Yorkshire Garden” 2018.
7-8 months ago it was a passing comment and then it soon became a reality. Lots of ideas were thrown around and the team put together a few plans in house of what we would like the stand to look like and soon realised it would be our biggest and best stand to date.
Roger Moore our Contracts Manager and the rest of our team made their way down to Chelsea to welcome the stand materials onto site and get stuck into the build-up phase. From little drawings the trade stand started to come to life.
The interest we received in Lindum Wildflower turf & Lindum Sedum Mat was something we never really expected. The amount of people that popped onto our stand to enquire about our products was outstanding and the many passers-by that congratulated us on our beautiful stand really did mean so much to us.
Our favourite visitors to the stand were by far the bees. This year we started our Save the Bees campaign and Chelsea was our main target to spread the word. We wanted to reiterate how important bees are to our everyday life and how Lindum Wildflower turf can create a haven for all types of bees and the impact you can create in a small space! Something that also aligns with the WowGrass ethos of been a “Green Supplier” to the Events industry.
All trade stands get awarded either a letter or 3-5 star awards. On Tuesday morning we were handed our award. We were speechless at receiving 4 very shiny stars. The feedback from the assessors was brilliant and made all the sleepless nights worthwhile.
We would like to say a thank you to all of our lovely neighbours for inviting us into their Chelsea family. The biggest appreciation goes to Ian and Michelle of Ian Gill Sculptures for the loan of the beautiful bird feeder and lily bird bath. They really did add another dimension to our products and showed them off beautifully.
The show week was totally out of this world and we couldn’t have asked for anything better, the sun was shining, the bees were buzzing and the general atmosphere as always was truly fantastic.
