Exhibit number eleven at Chelsea and we have maintained our perfect record of winning Gold Medals. This years display was constructed of five big beds of growing plants.
At this years Chelsea flower Show we were awarded our 8 th 'Chelsea Gold Medal and ' The Queens Diamond Jubilee Award' for the best Exhibit in the Grand Pavilion. Sarah received the award from The Queen on the Monday afternoon, a great honor. Here at H W Hyde & Son we take great pride in being the UK's top specialist Lily growers. Every year we run trials of the very newest varieties of both Lilies and Tulips, only the very best of these get included in our catalogue, tulip bulbs and martagon lily bulbs are supplied in the Autumn. Most other varieties of lilies are supplied in the Spring
During the year we exhibit at the top flower shows in the UK and our displays are made from flowers grown at our own nursery. So far we have a perfect record at the World famous 'Chelsea Flower Show', winning gold every time.
The 'Chelsea Plant of the Year Competition' was first contested in 2010, since then it has been run every year. Exhibitor's in the floral marquee can enter as many new plants as they wish, but only the top twenty are selected to go forward for the award. In 2010 we had planned to enter Lily Allen, but we missed the deadline !
For 2012 we decided to only enter two varieties : Bethan Evans and Cream Tea, both were voted into the top twenty.
Our contestant for the 2014 competition : Jennifer Evans
Our Competitor for 2015 'Twyford' one of our new 'Lotus Lilies'
