Dobbies embraces ‘green sanctuary’ at Chelsea

by | May 10, 2022 | Chains, Community, News | 0 comments

Garden retail giant Dobbies is marking the return of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show to May this year with a stand that is set to showcase how to embrace your own green sanctuary as well as sustainable gardening solutions.
Following its five-star award winning trade stand in 2021, Dobbies’ 2022 garden will highlight a broad spectrum of ideas for different spaces. The stand will showcase how to make the most of your green space, blurring the lines between indoors and out, the importance of grow your own for both wellbeing and sustainability, and innovative ways to introduce plants into alternative areas of the home.
It will feature layered foliage, cascading greenery and multi-stem trees; container planting, ideal for balconies and smaller spaces; as well as conservatory plants, which is a focus area for Dobbies in spring 2022.
The garden will highlight Dobbies’ commitment to sustainability and shine a light on its eco-friendly offerings such as Dobbies’ own brand peat-free compost, which is shortlisted for the RHS Chelsea Sustainable Product of the Year; Ecopots; elho’s range; safer pest control and Dobbies’ new wildflower turf. The garden will also display the PlantBox living wall from Growing Revolution that is planted to support wildlife and uses an innovative easy watering system.
Marcus Eyles, horticultural director at Dobbies says: “This year, our RHS Chelsea Flower Show stand is all about creating a green sanctuary, and the importance of embracing nature in a sustainable fashion. The garden has a variety of components that will not only showcase our team’s authority and expertise but aims to inspire people to create their own sanctuaries, with a plant-centric focus that both looks impressive and is good for the environment too.”
Dobbies’ Natural Zen furniture range will further reinforce the theme. The sustainable Tokyo black rope four-seat lounge set for casual alfresco dining and drinks, and an on-trend hanging chair, will evoke a feeling of relaxation and tranquillity in the space.
