Thirteen exhibitors at this year’s RHS Malvern Spring Festival (10-13 May at the Three Counties Showground, Malvern) will fly the Rolawn flag by choosing its premium turf and soft landscaping products for their show gardens and displays, as part of the brand’s first official sponsorship of the show.
Designers specifying Rolawn for their showpieces include: Peter Dowle (a multiple RHS show winner), the RAF Centenary Garden ‘Memories of Service’ by Wilson Garden Design, The Collectors Garden by Olivia Kirk Gardens, Green Living Spaces headed by RHS Ambassador Jamie Butterworth, and Bloms Bulbs (winners of 66 Chelsea Gold Medals), which will be using 75 square metres of Medallion as part of its tulip display in the Floral Pavilion.
As well as supplying more than 800 square metres of Medallion turf and 90+ bulk bags of blended loam topsoil, mulch, bark and soil improver, Rolawn will also have a display stand at Malvern. Visitors to the Rolawn stand will be able to get up close to their products and understand the story behind the ‘Topsoil you can trust’ message, and have the chance to enter the Rolawn ‘Grow challenge’ to win two places at an Adam Frost, BBC gardening presenter, Garden School masterclass.
Rolawn’s Managing Director, Paul Dawson comments: “RHS Malvern is one of the highlights of the horticultural calendar, and an event which we have been very proud to be associated with for some time. This year, we’re delighted to take our involvement one step further by becoming an official supporter, and we very much looking forward to marvelling at the beauty of the show gardens and displays in the knowledge that Rolawn products form the foundation of so many of them.”
Visitors to Malvern might also spot several areas of fresh, natural green carpet around the showground. The show’s organisers, Three Counties, recently replaced 600 square metres of turf ahead of this year’s event with Medallion.
