The chosen garden named Un Garreg has been designed by Rich Landscapes, a design and build family business based in the Brecon Beacons. Brothers, Harry and David Rich, who have been in business for just one year have already been very successful creating RHS show gardens, gaining a Best in Show inCardiffand Silver Gilt at BBC Gardeners World 2012. This will be their first garden for Chelsea.
Commenting on the decision, John Corcoran, Head of Retail at Bord na Mona UK, which distributes Vital Earth products, said, “Harry and David are a young team with real talent who specialise in interpreting their native landscape, using environmentally kind materials and sympathetic planting to create unique spaces for people to enjoy. These are exactly the values that Vital Earth seeks to espouse and if a brand like this can help designers like this to succeed at the highest level, then I will be delighted.
“It’s also a great way for Vital Earth to be at Chelsea. The brand is newer and smaller than many of its competitors and has only been in the retail market for a relatively short time, so I’m delighted to achieve a presence at the premier gardening show in its centenary year.”
