Solus Decor are exhibiting for the fourth time this month at RHS Chelsea Flower Show; the most renowned horticultural and outdoor living show across the world.
75th Anniversary of D-Day Landing
RHS Chelsea Flower Show is held at the Royal Hospital Chelsea in London. Royal Hospital Chelsea is the home of the Chelsea Pensioners. The Chelsea Pensioners have become as much a part of the Flower Show as the gardens on show. This year is an extra special year for the Chelsea Pensioners at the Chelsea Flower Show as it marks the 75th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings on 6th June 2019.
The D-Day 75 Garden
The ‘D-Day 75 Garden’ will be exhibited at the Royal Hospital Chelsea during this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show, 21st-25th May and will celebrate the lives of our Normandy veterans.75 veterans have been invited to take part during Chelsea Flower Show. They will share their incredible stories with the Chelsea pensioners and the public. The garden will then be gifted by the veterans to the town of Arromanches in Normandy. The ceremony will take place on 6th June 2019.
We can’t wait to see this fantastic design created by John Everiss, a multi RHS gold award winner at Tatton and Chelsea. To find out more about “75 Reasons” and see how you can donate take a look at D Day Revisited.

Solus Decor had the opportunity to collaborate with award winning garden designer Leon Davis at this year’s RHS Tatton Park Flower show this month. Leon Davis won gold and best in show for his garden.
The garden design for RHS Tatton Park entitled From Hop to Glass was sponsored by JW Lees brewery in celebration of the 190th anniversary of the brewery . The design draws inspiration from the brewing industry, interpreting materials, features and processes in a contemporary style and composition.
The design is in part framed by glass screens, providing a foil for grasses, which are mixed with deep red and amber perennials to represent the inviting flow and texture of a freshly-poured pint.
Within the planting is a circular shallow stream, which encloses relaxing spaces to sit and relax combined with the familiar textures and elements that are synonymous with a traditional pub. The curved bench gives the feel of the serving bar and the warm and inviting atmosphere is provided by the Solus Decor fire pit and the brass details around the garden.
Leon Davis has incorporated the Hemi fire bowl in the garden design. The Hemi fire bowl is available in three sizes, three fuel options and ten colour options. The Hemi fire pit converts into a table with a hardwood table or metal table top depending to suit your style.

Solus Decor have collaborated with the award winning garden designer Rosemary Coldstream at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show this month. Rosemary’s Best of Both Worlds Garden won a gold award at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show.
The Best of Both Worlds Garden was designed for an imaginary couple who have a small garden but differing tastes. To keep each other happy, they’ve split the garden into two equal halves. One side has a country-garden feel and a palette of blues, purple and pinks. The other side is more contemporary with a simpler mix of green foliage and golden grasses.
About the Best of Both Worlds Garden
Rosemary Coldstream has incorporated Solus Decor’s elevated halo fire pit in the contemporary side of the garden in a sunken seating area. The planting in the contemporary area in a more simplified palette of yellow, green, blue and hints of red. The landscaping is linear in its design in contrast to the country style garden.
The garden was created by landscaping apprentices, trainees and students on BALI’s GoLandscape initiative which is supported by the RHS. BALI’S GoLandscape initiative encourages young people to pursue a career in horticulture. The young designers, landscapers and contractors have been mentored by designer Rosemary Coldstream and David Dodd of The Outdoor Room as part of the Best of Both Worlds Garden project.
Elevated Halo Fire Pit
Rosemary Coldstream has incorporated Solus Decor’s elevated halo fire pit with biofuel in the contemporary side of the best of both worlds garden. The elevated halo fire pit is available in 36″ and 48″ sizes and with three different fuel options; natural gas, liquid propane and biofuel as seen at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show. The fire pit is ideal for both commercial and residential installations.
To see the garden in action take a look at this snippet from the BBC commentary on Hampton Court Flower Show with Adam Frost.

Chelsea is at the forefront of the shows for the garden industry. This year is no exception and we are excited to see the CHERUB HIV Garden: A Life Without Walls designed by Naomi Ferrett-Cohen. Naomi is working with HIV partnership CHERUB to help raise awareness about young people living with HIV in the UK and beyond. Featuring a Solus Water Dome, Naomi has designed a space that could be recreated within a home garden context. The garden uses specialist planting and design to take visitors on a powerful symbolic journey helping to promote acceptance and understanding about the condition.
Every year the world renowned RHS Chelsea Flower Show is held on the grounds of the Chelsea Royal Hospital, home to the Chelsea Pensioners. For 5 days in May the grounds are transformed into an array of outdoor oasis’, offering inspiration for those visiting the show from near and far.
Last year we had a great time exhibiting with Jack Dunkley and were privileged to feature our fire and water features in the Urban Retreat designed by Jack. Not only was it our first time at Chelsea but we also launched our Fire Cube in the UK at the show and we were thrilled to be shortlisted for product of the year for the Fire Cube.
The show is a great opportunity to see new garden and outdoor living products to inspire visitors and for many exhibitors The Chelsea Flowers Show is the perfect opportunity to launch new products. However for many the main draw is the incredible show gardens. The show gardens take centre stage at the show with incredible vision and creativity displayed, not to mention the huge amount of hard work involved to create the gardens.
Here’s a reminder of some of the show gardens that made a big impact in 2016:
Andy Sturgeon made a huge impact at the show last year for his garden design, which was not only a gold medal winner but also won best in show .
We are looking forward to being part of Chelsea Flower Show again this year and the opportunity to see the wonderful array of exceptional garden design on show once again.

Finalists for New Product of the Year Award – Chelsea Flower Show
Solus Decor UK is very pleased to have been selected as a finalist in the New Product of the Year Award 2016 at the Chelsea Flower Show.
A Fire Pit for Everyone
This is our very first year displaying at the Chelsea flower show. We are pleased to be participating in this prestigious event. We met so many people who visited our display – all with different sized gardens and patios. Our Firecube 16 is versatile for all of these applications. Small enough to fit a cozy apartment or small garden, this fire pit has the advantage of a biofuel (ethanol) burner. For larger gardens and outdoor spaces, the Firecube looks wonderful displayed in tiered clusters of 2 or 3 or placed in a seating area in multiples. The Firecube is also available with a Natural Gas or Propane burner. This makes it very convenient to burn for extended periods of time. Firecube 16 is compact and modern with a surprising amount of heat output for its small size. Clean-lined and functional, it fits easily into gardens and spaces of any size. It also transitions into a table when paired with its concrete lid.
