Inaugural partnership with The Royal Horticultural Society at RHS Chelsea Flower Show

UBS partnership with The Royal Horticultural Society at RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Great Pavilion Exhibitor Supporter

This year UBS will partner with the RHS for the first time at the Chelsea Flower Show.

The RHS and UBS will support four nurseries and growers in their journey to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, to participate in an exhibit within the Great Pavilion. Our four selected nurseries are purpose driven, demonstrate sustainable horticulture, and will be cohesively brought together at our installation RHS x UBS “A Day on the nursery: insights into life as a grower” through the theme of edible planting.

We look forward to providing show visitors insight into innovative garden design and sustainable horticulture, and partnering with the RHS at their world famous flower show.

Meet our selected nurseries and growers

Caley Brothers Mushrooms

Based in West Sussex, they are passionate about all aspects of growing delicious gourmet and medicinal mushrooms.

Drawing inspiration from their family’s grocery business established in the 1950s, sisters Jodie and Lorraine are taking the Caley Brothers name forward into the next generation.

The sisters have a green and sustainable approach to mushroom farming and share their growing journey via commercially available grow kits, and a regular program of educational workshops.

Visit the Caley Brothers website to find out more.

Kent Wildflower Seeds

A family owned and run business, Kent Wildflower Seeds harvests and cultivates wildflower seeds from meadows and plots across Kent, in the UK.

Aside from harvesting and cultivating wildflower seeds, they produce native seeds and seed mixes that consider nature and the environment.

Their efforts aim to support nature by reframing wildflowers as beautiful, edible plants that promote biodiversity and personal wellbeing.

See more from Kent Wildflower Seeds on their website.

Kitchen Garden Plant Centre

Gloucestershire based and run by husband-and-wife Neil and Niamh Jones.

The nursery grows herbs and edible plants which can be productive in small spaces such as pots or window boxes, or part of a larger garden.

Neil and Niamh believe edible plants support a more sustainable future for food lovers and the natural environment, many of their plants are great for pollinators, and sustainable practices are integrated throughout their work.

She Grows Veg

Founded by garden designers and growers Lucy Hutchings and Kate Cotterill.

Based in Suffolk, Lucy and Kate started their heirloom vegetable seed company in 2023 with a mission to encourage people to grow their own food.

She Grows Veg has strong sustainability principles and is passionate about supporting people to start growing, and to try new and unusual varieties of vegetables.

Bloom or bust

It is dawning on the global community that biodiversity loss requires just as swift action as climate change. The urgent need for a more holistic approach to confronting it is expressed in the Global Biodiversity Framework’s goal of reversing biodiversity loss by 2030. Achieving this goal demands bold action.
