Stephen Woodhams Design - Projects - Show Garden
Chelsea Flower Show, 2010

Projects-Show Gardens - Chelsea-2010 - rhsawardWe were commissioned to take Smallbone to the Chelsea Flower Show in conjunction with Amdega and to design a trade stand which basically housed the Smallbone kitchen within the Amdega Conservatory.

Once Smallbone had decided on the design of the kitchen (which they have now put into production as “The Chelsea Range”), we chose the colour schemes throughout the stand.

We wanted a garden around the conservatory that felt very real, as if it were a client’s location, so we maximised the space to allow for some lovely planting as well as an area to relax on sofas, and to include a dining space was very important.

For a show garden we needed to create a ‘wow factor’ – which I think we achieved as we were the first designers to take flat-pruned Platanus acerifolia to the show, creating a leafy ceiling overhead.

We commissioned Tom Stogdon to create the circular sculpture which we floated over water, and it was the first time we introduced parallel line planting to Chelsea. We were also successful at winning the “Best Trade Stand” award for Chelsea 2010.
