Hartley Botanic awarded five stars for Tatton Park tradestand

Date published: 23 July 2021


Greenfield-based Hartley Botanic have been awarded Five Stars by the RHS for their tradestand at the prestigious Flower Show at Tatton Park in Cheshire.

Following its popularity at the recent RHS Hampton Court Garden Festival, Glasshouse and Greenhouse manufacturer Hartley Botanic has taken its ‘heritage and history’ stand to Tatton, which celebrates and showcases its business through the decades.

The ‘heritage and history’ show stand communicates the Greenhouse manufacturer’s unrivalled heritage and reputation - built over 83 years - with five handmade Hartley Botanic structures, each representing different eras in its trading history.

The show stand traces the manufacturer’s incredible legacy using its beautiful handmade structures – from a 1950s vintage Semi-Dodecagon Greenhouse to a modern-day Hartley 8 Planthouse.

For RHS Tatton Park, the stand has been built and planted by Base Squared Design and Build with design and styling by Llevelo Garden Design.

Tom Barry, CEO of Hartley Botanic, said; “Receiving five stars for our stand this year is particularly special in light of the extra pressures put on our team as a result of the pandemic.

"Our colleagues and partners have pulled out all the stops to ensure plants were available, deliveries were on time, and have worked tirelessly in blistering temperatures.

"We feel very honoured and hope our ‘heritage and history’ stand helps visitors to understand a little more of Hartley Botanic’s 83 year old heritage – of which we are all so proud.”
