Perennial has announced Glendale ? one of the UK?s leading providers ? as their lead show garden sponsor at the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park this year.
The Perennial Legacy Garden, supported by Glendale and designed by Gardening World Cup 2014 Best in Show winner Paul Hervey-Brookes, highlights the importance of legacy gifts to the charity. It will provide an opportunity for Perennial to talk to visitors about how important legacies are for Perennial, enabling the charity to continue its work. In 2014 legacies made up over 34% of all income to the charity.
Anita Bates, Director of Marketing and Development at Perennial, says,
?This is a very special event for Perennial this year. Not only is it our first show garden at the ?Chelsea of the North?, but it is the only show garden designed by Paul Hervey-Brookes in the UK in 2015. We are thrilled to have his support, alongside that of some of the biggest names in UK horticulture! Glendale?s generous donation has enabled us to stage this garden and as ever, we are grateful for their support.
?We are a strong, unique charity that was established by the owners of estates and country houses of Great Britain. This garden reflects that tradition of support and we hope will highlight our continued need for legacy income in order to help all those who work in the UK?s horticultural community. Paul has taken our brief and created for Perennial a celebration of tradition and a garden that is as inspirational today as it would have been in the 19th Century.?
Andy Corcoran, Managing Director at Glendale, says,
?Glendale is committed in its support for Perennial and it?s a real pleasure to make our mark on this wonderful show garden at the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park. Our support involves the donation of 2,000 plants and five trees which will be planted in the garden, and we?re looking forward to seeing them blossom as part of the finished project. Representatives from Glendale will also be working in the garden so it really will have the Glendale stamp.
?It?s our aim to help horticulturists in need through our long-term association with Perennial and hope The Perennial Legacy Garden serves as a reminder that those who care for the green spaces of modern Britain are not always as visible as the gardens, parks, landscapes and sportsgrounds they meticulously maintain.?
