A look back at the RHS Garden Shows and Gabriel Ash Greenhouses

The 2016 RHS Show season was a great success for my client Gabriel Ash, who not only managed to have successful trade stand exhibits, but their wonderful greenhouses and coldframes popped up in the show gardens and floral displays also. 

The team at Gabriel Ash always make an immense effort to display the greenhouses they manufacture for the public visiting the shows.  The planting and staging of the greenhouses is always wonderful and this year they received a string of 5 star trade stand awards from the RHS judging panel.

The shows are always a great opportunity to photograph the greenhouses at their best when they are packed with wonderful plants and accessories to allow the visitors chance to imagine what is possible in their own garden with one of these wonderful structures.

The RHS Chelsea show saw the regular Chelsea Pensioners visit the stand for a photo opportunity. There is always a buzz when the famous red jackets are around and they are always happy to pose for a photograph.

The Gabriel Ash structures were also used in the plant marques as displays for nurseries and plant societies.  Tom Smiths Plants used one of the Gabriel Ash Greenhouses to help display his wonderful container grown vegetable and fruit plants to best effect at both the Chelsea Flower Show and Tatton Park Flower Show winning a coveted Silver Guilt medal at both shows.

The Young Designer of the Year category at the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park saw garden designer Lilly Gomm scoop a Silver Guilt medal for her garden "A Space to Ruminate" which featured a Gabriel Ash Grand Coldframe.  This was a fitting end to a very success full show season for the team at Gabriel Ash.
