Award winning urban garden centre launches Houseplant Studio at RHS Chelsea

by | Sep 10, 2021 | Independents, News | 0 comments

Award winning urban garden centre N1 will be showcasing its trend-led houseplants, pots, and accessories at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show as part of the first Houseplant Studio space.

Chosen alongside a select group of innovative garden centres from across the UK, N1 will be part of the first RHS Chelsea Flower Show to take part in September since 1913 and taking inspiration from the autumn timings the design will be inspired by the changing colours of the season. The installation will showcase a vision for plants as an integral feature of the home and demonstrate how indoor plants and signals from nature can combine to produce inspirational statements reflected inside the home.

Thanks to creative director Paul Holt’s horticultural expertise and passion for design, the team will be capturing the majestic magic of autumn in all its colourful glory including a focus on bright oranges, yellows, and bleached terracotta as part of an autumnal palette. Comfort and warmth will be evoked using natural, sustainable materials mixed with lush, soft foliage, colourful fruits, and vibrant, variegated plants.

With a plethora of ideas to help visitors refresh their houseplant collection, the studio will include luscious varieties including Aglaonema ‘Orange Star’ and ‘Red Star’, Philodendron ‘Painted Lady’ and ‘Orange Kind’, as well as bead plants and Pilea Peperomioides varieties ‘Sugar’, ‘White Spot’ and ‘Mojito’.

Quality plants have always been at the forefront of N1’s ethos, and the team actively seeks out new varieties that visitors may have not seen before. As the last 18 months have seen a boom in houseplant sales, Paul Holt is looking to inspire newcomers and plant enthusiasts to create exciting displays that will update interiors for autumn with quick and easy fixes.

Paul comments: “We’ll demonstrate how to create a stunning feature using something you might already have at home, such as a tray or glass storage jar, and add a houseplant or two with a pop of colour to bring some style to even the smallest spaces.”

As well as the Houseplant Studio, Paul and the N1 team will be adding their design details to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show Experience Stand, highlighting their expertise as the leading light of indoor plants at the world’s greatest flower show.

The brand new N1 online store will also be launching at the end of September, to coincide with Chelsea, bringing shoppers across the UK beautiful products to add a new injection of life and style into the home, including an exclusive collection of products not available in store, as well as styling inspiration and plant care tips. Shoppers can also visit N1’s sister location, the W6 Garden Centre which opened in West London in 2011 and is overseen by director Louise Alhadeff.
