Howard Nurseries & National Collection Sir Cedric Morris Irises at RHS Chelsea attract the BBC’s attention…

At Melcourt we are proud to have played a special role in Sarah Cook’s Sir Cedric Morris Irises stand at RHS Chelsea 2015 both as sponsors and suppliers. Our professional peat-free growing medium
Sylvamix® has been used to raise the irises at Howard Nurseries, one of the UK’s leading
herbaceous perennial nurseries. Howards have been Sylvamix users for several years and along with many nurseries across the UK they have successfully grown a wide range of plants in the mix.
Everyone involved has been delighted with the excellence that has been achieved with the irises in

Christine Howard of Howards Nurseries tells us that their regional TV Magazine programme Look
East went to the nursery to film on 12th May for broadcast on the 13th and that the package filmed for the main RHS Chelsea coverage should broadcast on 21st May.

…and don’t forget to visit Hardy’s Cottage Garden Plants,Trewidden Nursery and others if you’re at Chelsea

These exhibitors produce beautiful plants, are enthusiastic users of Melcourt Sylvamix,  and are also committed to making the product available to peat-free gardeners as SylvaGrow®, one of four products in our Passionate Gardener range. We believe that Trewidden Nursery are being filmed by the BBC during set up. No pressure there then!
