Although I was unable to attend the Chelsea Flower Show this year, I was pleased to see some of our dried roses in attendance! We were very pleased to be contacted by Ernest George who was needing a decorative top dressing for two large planters for the GeoWear GardenGirl exhibit.
We were able to supply some mixed burgundy rose buds and petals which were spread about an inch deep in the planters, and used to decorate the accessories. These dried flowers have a delicate sweet scent, which must have added to the cottage garden effect in the warm sunshine.
A classic combination of lavender and roses!
The stand got a certificate of commendation for from the RHS for the high quality presentation, and in particular the judges mentioned the use of the rosebuds for mulch!
