We’re launching a series of new products inspired by the Perennial Lifeline Garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The new range includes a Corten steel decorative wall panel from Stark & Greensmith and a ‘grow your own rose meadow’ kit. The garden celebrates our 180th anniversary and all proceeds support our work to help people in horticulture. They will be sold from Perennial’s trade stand in Eastern Avenue and online during and after the show.
The products feature Perennial’s new brand, which has been unveiled for the first time this week. An active person works at the heart of the new logo, reflecting Perennial’s focus on, first and foremost, helping people in horticulture. Trees provide the horticultural landscape and water as a fundamental necessity in all branches of the industry. The new brand colours are inspired by seasonal changes in nature.
This decorative wall panel made from Corten steel takes inspiration from the rose meadow in the Perennial Lifeline Garden. Designed by Martine Le Gassick, Creative Director of Stark & Greensmith, it captures the timeless beauty of the rose with a pattern that includes full blooms, budded stems and leaves. Each limited edition piece has been finished by hand and will weather over time to develop a beautiful rich rusted patina. It can be hung as a single panel or as part of a group to create a striking feature either outside or inside. Bespoke panels by Stark & Greensmith were used in the Perennial Lifeline Garden, which was designed by Colm Joseph and Duncan Cargill referencing the traditional rose garden at Sir Roy Strong’s The Laskett Gardens.
Inspired by the sustainable rose meadow that is at the centre of the Perennial Lifeline Garden, the ‘Grow your own rose meadow’ kit is a comprehensive guide to creating a rose meadow in your own garden. It contains practical instructions on the key principles of a rose meadow from garden designers Colm Joseph and Duncan Cargill, detailing the layering of plants and the low maintenance approach. Each layer of the rose meadow is described with suggested perennials, grasses and roses to plant to create the rose meadow effect. There are instructions on how to plan and plant a meadow in your garden, with meadows starting for sites that are 3m x 3m. The pack comes with a 15% discount voucher to spend at Peter Beales Roses and a packet of Poppy seeds from Suttons Seeds.
Six new products including an apron, water bottle, notebook and mug feature the rose motif inspired by The Perennial Lifeline Garden, which is in turn inspired by the classical rose garden at The Laskett Gardens. 100% of the profit goes toward supporting Perennial’s services that are a lifeline for people who work in horticulture.
