With less than a month to go, The Horticultural Trades Association (HTA) is gearing up to demonstrate the value of the UK horticultural sector to thousands of visitors expected at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2023, which runs from Tuesday 23 to Saturday 27 May 2023, at The Royal Hospital, Chelsea.
2023 will be the first year the HTA has a trade stand at the show to talk about key issues within the industry, including sustainability and drought, as well as to promote the quality workmanship of the Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) and encourage more people into gardening with National Garden Gift Vouchers.
The stand will be built by APL members: JJH, Radial Landscapes, Nick Fryer, Bushy Business and supported by London Stone, Composite Prime, Provender Nurseries, Oase, Growing Revolution and Bury Hill Top Soil, Arbour Landscape Solutions and Landscape Plus.
APL General Manager Phil Tremayne commented, “The Association of Professional Landscapers have an excellent pedigree at RHS shows, winning many awards. So, it’s great that we have been able to include a few of our members and associates in the creation of this HTA stand. I know they are looking forward to pulling this together and hopefully giving the HTA team a fantastic platform to work from during the show.”
HTA CEO Fran Barnes said, “We’re delighted to represent our members at the most prestigious horticultural show of the year, working alongside our award-winning partners at the Association of Professional Landscapers to invite visitors to recognise the value of environmental horticulture.”
