5 Star Award Winners at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show for the Second Year Running
We did it again! Chilstone are proud to have won a 5-star award at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, the highest award for a trade stand. This is our second win in consecutive years! We worked hard to design and create the stand with designer Ali Dempster, filling it full of fantastic plants grown by local supplier How Green Nursery.
Bespoke Commissions, Restorations and Replicas
Following the success of our sleek statue, Leda and the Swan released at Chelsea 2017, we unveiled two new sculptures, The Birth of Helen, celebrating Helen of Troy and Aquila, an eagle on our stand at Chelsea. Both were produced in our Kent workshop by hand. We have made bespoke commissions for many customers, please talk to our team to bring your ideas to life.
A Celebration of 65 years in business
Chilstone are commemorating 65 years in business with a new sundial plinth called the Chelsea Sundial, released at the Flower Show. This curvaceous piece is the largest single baluster shape we’ve ever made. At an impressive 108 cm high this is a statement sundial plinth, ideal for large armillary spheres.
Chilstone make a large range of planters, garden ornaments (including fountains) and make bespoke orders for architectural and garden projects.
Our Show Stopper, the Classic Kew Fountain
Our stand featured our best-selling handcrafted cast stone garden ornaments and architectural components. The stand represented the smart front of a property with striking architectural stone features to compliment the formal landscaping of a compact courtyard garden. Our Kew fountain stood serene in the centre as a classic and tranquil water feature. The combination of our handcrafted designs with elegant planting celebrated 65 years of creating homes and garden of distinction. Thank you to all our customers who have supported us over the years and for your keen interest in our beautiful Kew Fountain.
