RHS Flower Show launches at Chatsworth!

This year, we are very pleased to be involved in the inaugural RHS Flower Show at Chatsworth in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside.

Working once again with Alitex, we will be landscaping one of their beautiful Glasshouses to provide a realistic, natural garden setting. The external landscaping will include our elegant Petworth Flagstones from the National Trust Country House range and our gorgeous Chedworth Tiles from the Roman Villa range will grace the interior.

The Show will feature 8 Show Gardens offering ‘pure theatre: innovative trends, spectacular designs and joyful planting’. Whilst the 8 Freeform gardens provide a ‘creative spectrum’ with designers from many disciplines teaming up with the world of horticulture to deliver ‘spectacular and visually arresting garden installations, gardens and sculptures’.

RHS Chatsworth promises to be a magical event with one of Englands most beautiful country houses as it’s backdrop. The Show runs from Wednesday 7th – Saturday 11th June – limited tickets available.

Westminster Stone help Alitex win at RHS Chelsea 2017

We are very pleased to have once again paved the way for beautiful glass house company Alitex to win a 5* Tradestand Award at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show. Providing the landscaping, our rustic Henslate flagstones were used to pave the interior of the Glasshouse, whilst our Jacobean Brick pavers and mellow Hidcote Flagstones from our National Trust Cotswold Manor range provided the perimeter paths and stepped landscaping.

Our collaboration with Alitex continues next month with the brand new RHS Chatsworth which begins on Wednesday 7th June and runs until Saturday 11th June.
