GOLD! for Burncoose at the Chelsea Flower Show 2023
Burncoose Nurseries were thrilled to be exhibiting their plants at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show which took place from Tuesday, May 23rd to Saturday, May 27.
Trees of the Future is the title of the exhibit and has a big focus on non-native species that can survive in our changing climate while also helping to combat against it.
Inspired by the research of leading experts such as Tony Kirkham from Kew, this collection has been brought together for their qualities of being non-invasive, disease resistant and good hosts to wildlife.
Sustainability is front and centre of the exhibit with a particular focus on water conservation, so many of the plants chosen can survive the longer, hotter, dryer summers without the need for extra watering.
Some of the plants included in the exhibit are Paulownia tomentosa, Acer Griseum, Koelreuteria paniculata, Catalpa bignonioides, Acacia pravissimia, Elaeagnus ‘Quicksilver’, Rhus typhina ‘Tiger Eyes’, Arbutus unedo.
