On their exhibit (PW250) at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show Redwood Stone, from Wells in Somerset, celebrate their 25th Anniversary of staging a trade exhibit at the world’s most prestigious flower show. The highlight of this year’s exhibit will be a beautiful new Cloister Window.
Redwood’s first major impact at Chelsea was to design, supply and build the majestic Gothic Arches for John Van Hage’s Gold Medal winning and Best in Show ‘The Forgotten Pavilion’ in 1991. The following year the company was invited to take a trade exhibit and apart from one sabattical has been present ever since.
Experiences at Chelsea led Tim Redwood to develop an aged stone finish that ‘looked and smelt’ centuries old and 10 years later Redwoods launched their own Gothic Folly at Chelsea in 2001 and in doing so became the first folly specialists for over a century. In the intervening years they had supplied various Gold Medal Winning gardens and then the Gothic Folly designs led to collaborations with Hillier Nurseries and more recently Peter Beales Roses with many more Gold Medals being achieved.
Now for their 25th Anniversary Redwoods are showing the latest incarnations of their Gothic Folly and the new introduction of a Cloister Window that sits so comfortably with their existing weathered Manor Balustrade and Doric Columns to create a garden setting in the classical style.
