Chelsea Flower Show 2019

This years stand took inspiration from our own long history, emulating an Edwardian glasshouse.

We placed Cymbidium Loewianum magnificum and Oncidium Edwardii, two of our oldest plants, centre stage & surrounded them with many other unique McBeans orchids. Cym.Lowianum has been to every Chelsea Flower Show, and records show Onc. Edwardii first flowered in the nursery in 1905, the flowers this year were outstanding.

Brighton based specialist garden designer Daniel Bell helped install a living wall, and though the Vandas did not enjoy the trip, the overall effect was a soft and nostalgic, it was very well received.

We came home delighted with a RHS Silver Gilt medal, there is always room for a little improvement!
