Crocus bids farewell to the Chelsea Flower Show

by | 09 Apr 24 | Commercial Landscaping, Garden Design, News

Long standing supplier and landscaper for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, Crocus, has today announced to Gardens Illustrated that it will be stepping back after this year’s upcoming show.

Since its founding in 2000 by Mark Fane and Peter Clay, Crocus has been a staple at Chelsea, supplying plants and building gardens for the last 22 shows.

Fane revealed Tom Stuart-Smith’s National Garden Scheme Garden and Ula Maria’s Muscular Dystrophy UK – Forest Bathing Garden, will mark the end of the company’s involvement at Chelsea.

This decision comes for a multitude of reasons, Fane explains to Gardens Illustrated, stating the nursery’s involvement is no longer commercially beneficial for the company.

With around 8,000 plants needed for each Chelsea show garden, this step back will free up time for the nursery at its busiest time of the year.

Crocus not only grows and supplies all its show garden’s plants, it is also responsible for their landscaping – a role Fane says is overlooked.

Out of the 36 judged show gardens in nursery’s portfolio, 12 have won Best Show Garden and a further 33 have taken home Gold medals.

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show will be taking place on the 21 – 25 May 2024. For more information on the show, visit:
