Gold medal at Chelsea for Taylors Bulbs of Holbeach

Taylors Bulbs have won their 26th consecutive Gold medal at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show for their stunning display of British grown daffodils from their Holbeach farm.

The display is made up of over 70 varieties of daffodils and 2000 flowers of all colours, shapes and sizes.  The stand is truly a magnificent sight, regularly stopping visitors in their tracks as they browse the Grand Pavilion.

Adam Taylor, Director, added “We are absolutely delighted in achieving a gold medal at Chelsea in our centenary year and particularly pleased as, although many of the team involved in the flower display have been involved in the shows before, this was the first year with Sallyanne leading. Everyone here has supported each other really well and driven a determination to make it to the Gold Medal standard.”

Sallyanne Foreman leads the team that put together the display; “The question we are asked the most is how we get them to all flower at the same time.  When gardeners see some of the earliest flowering varieties such as February Gold displayed alongside Pheasant’s Eye, they wonder how a flowering gap of about 3 months they have seen in their garden has vanished in our display.”

“We force the flowers to display quality and the lack of sun in early May initially caused slow emergence.  What started out as a slow process accelerated rapidly once the fine, bright weather returned, turning the picking of the flowers into an endurance event!”

Taylors Bulbs are one of the largest bulb companies in the country and the family business is celebrating their 100 Year Anniversary in 2019.

The Walkers Bulbs @ Taylors display can be found in the Grand Pavilion stand no GPB111.
