Green side up for The RHS

Hampton Court Flower Show The famous Hampton Court Palace Flower Show opens it's doors to the public on Tuesday 5th July.  The show, which is the world’s largest flower show, is the ultimate experience for passionate gardeners and those looking to start their own home-grown garden.

The show set up is in full swing with the show gardens build team watching the clock to get the gardens set up in time.  The event organised by The Royal Horticultural Society have their own Team assisting exhibitors set up in the retail arena.

Whilst everyone is busy building show gardens and directing exhibitors, the RHS show team have their own problems to solve to ensure that the site looks great for the thousands of visitors making their pilgrimage to the famous Hampton Court Palace. 

The Team at The Lawn Shop came to the rescue when an urgent request to supply The Lawn Shop, Soluble Iron to be used in rapidly greening up a high profile area of lawn on the garden show site ahead of the opening day.  Order placed at 08:12am and personally delivered to the RHS Show Offices at 11:00. 

Maria Casey from the RHS Show Management Team who send the online product request said "It is really nice to deal with an organisation that really knows what they are on about and provide such excellent customer service too.  I was really surprised when my order arrived after just a few hours of placing the order".   MD of the Lawn Company, Mike Seaton, who own and manage The Lawn Shop, said "It was obvious that trying to get a Courier to deliver the product to the show site on a Saturday might be stretching the boundaries a little.  The product needs to be applied quickly so that it can get to work and we often jump through hoops to assist those in their hour of need to green up an area of turf before a big event". 

So if you have an important function coming up in the garden, large and small, then an application of Lawn Shop Soluble Iron at around 0.7 Kg per 15 lts of water in a 15 litre knapsack per 700 sqm will provide rapid greening up of turf grasses and make the site look excellent for the event if applied up to a week before the special day.
