Gardensite Sponsors Show Garden at Gardeners' World Live 2015

In 2015 Nathan James Dodd was proud to announce that GardenSite was sponsoring a Show Garden at BBC Gardeners' World Live, the leading gardening show that attracts thousands of visitors to the NEC each year.

Gardeners World Live

Running since 1992, BBC Gardeners' World Live is an annual event taking place over several days at the NEC Birmingham. 

Visitors arrive in anticipation of seeing TV personalities giving lectures, an impressive floral marquee and the many show gardens, along with a host of special events and presentations.

For the first time in 2015 GardenSite sponsored one of the gardens and it was an exciting opportunity to promote the GardenSite brand to members of the public attending this huge gardening event.

GardenSite worked with Nottingham garden designer and customer Andy Tudbury, to get a Carmen Pavilion on site and erected (working in partnership with Rowlinson) and a Rocking chair for the show garden (donated by Alexander Rose and being raffled off later at our garden centre. 

Styled as a summerhouse, the Carmen Pavilion is a remarkably attractive structure which features tongue & groove cladding and prominent louvre panels that allow light as well as a cooling breeze into the interior. There's a large sheltered entertaining area and the pavilion is supplied with an untreated natural finish that can be stained or painted in your preferred colour.

The Farmers Rocking Chair is part of the Pine Collection by Alexander Rose, a selection of high quality furniture pieces that are sturdily designed for the outdoors. The pine comes from Poland and has a lovely yellow and green grain which will mellow to silver grey and the chair is tremendously relaxing as you rock to and fro. 

The image shows the initial garden design by Andy. It is a tribute to his late father and is based on his retirement pursuits - golf, growing vegetables and roses. All these elements are encapsulated in a perfect allotment, a fantasy garden where his father would love to relax. 

Gardeners World Live takes place each year in June and following on the success of 2015 we'll definitely consider sponsoring another garden in the near future.
