Aspiring Arches and Perfect Pergolas - February 2012
ASPIRING ARCHES AND PERFECT PERGOLAS
With 157,000 visitors passing through the gates each year, a heritage and history as rich as any and a reputation for gardening excellence around the world, the Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show is a pivotal event in the gardening calendar – and for the 10th year running, Lowestoft –based Harrod Horticultural will be there!
It’s a case of ‘Go West’ as the innovative East Anglian mail order gardening manufacturers and suppliers head to swanky SW3 to display their much talked about range of aspiring arches, perfect pergolas and ostentatious obelisks – all researched, designed and manufactured by the Suffolk business.
And in a break from previous years, the family-run mail order company will be dispensing with the successful retail side of their Chelsea display to give full exposure to the Gothic, Roman and Ogee arch designs, an example of the eye-catching linked arch, a show-stealing pergola and all three designs (as above) of the recently revealed steel obelisk range.
Harrod Horticultural’s bold decision to embrace the Chelsea Flower Show theme goes one step further as the forward-thinking outfit are designing a themed, fully planted garden for 2012 which will present the garden structure collection in full, garden dominating glory.
Manufactured to the same exacting standards as the legendary Harrod Horticultural steel fruit cages, the arches, pergolas and obelisks display an astonishing build quality and attention to detail. Flush fitting black connectors with steel inserts link the matt black powder coated framework together seamlessly, steel wire and practically indestructible gripple clips give the linked arch phenomenal strength and where flush fitting connectors are not required, black coated stainless steel fixings are as discreet as it gets!
But it’s not just looking good in the garden which forms the core of Harrod Horticultural’s 2012 Chelsea display; their reputation for creating products for growing vegetables in style means that a Decorative Steel Fruit Cage, the multi-level Manger Raised Planters and renowned wooden raised beds – available in hard-to choose-between Allotment, Standard and Superior designs – will all be fully planted up and strutting their stuff in the grounds of the Royal Hospital between May 22 and 26th.
