• Oak Leaf Gates, RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2019

  • We were delighted to receive the opportunity to showcase our venue dressing expertise at Chelsea Flower Show.

    Oak Leaf Gates have a track record of 5 star winning trade stands at Chelsea Flower Show. Richard Ecclestone, Managing Director, trusted the dressing of his plot in the capable hands of Butterworth Horticulture.

  • The handsome, sophisticated gates on display required a soft-landscapers touch to dress it appropriately for the most prestigious flower show in the world.

    Oak Leaf are renowned for their crafted, quality and refinement. It was decided that the planting scheme needed to be simple, classy, understated yet powerful.

    This brief led to a shady, woodland inspired planting scheme. Delicate flowers in muted tones and a tapestry of green foliage would serve the perfect foil for these smart gates.

  • Quality oak was complemented with a foil of greenery, delicate flowers and textural foliage.

    Dryopteris affinis ‘Pinderi’, fluffy ornamental grasses (Melica altissima ‘Alba’), and Epimedium x rubrum and Alcehmilla epipsila provided textural groundcover. Starry white flowers of Geranium phaeum ‘Album’, delicate droplets of Polygonatum multiflorum and gauzy blooms of Viburnum plicatum were glowing from beneath the canopy of a show-stopping Cornus kousa ‘Starlight’. Geranium phaeum ‘Samobor’ has a sophisticated, dusky, deep purple that contrasted beautifully with the large Rodgersia leaves and small white flowers below the trees.
