Yes, you did read that right... I have a stand at RHS Chelsea Flower Show!
Going to RHS Chelsea flower show is my FAVOURITE day of the year- better than Christmas, Easter and my Birthday added together. I love everything about it and I am SO excited that not only will I be attending and contributing, but my amazing brand 'The Rose Press Garden' will be representing beginner gardeners!
I nearly fainted when I received the phone call a few months ago to confirm that my stand was booked... and it has taken all of my energy to not scream it from the rooftops. I am still so excited about everything to do with it- choosing my products, creating the trade stand and planning it all. It's the most prestigious gardening and flower show, so to be there means the world to me, and to be there in my first year of trading is simply a dream come true! I couldn't have done it without you all. Thank you to everyone who has supported my new business and helped it grow and thrive.

I'm on a mission to make gardening modern, fun and easy, and having a presence at RHS Chelsea Flower Show is just one step on the way to educate more people about the benefits of gardening. I'm excited to have a trade stand to meet so many of you, share my products and thank you all individually for your support! Plus to meet lots of new faces too. hopefully lots of you who are attending will head home with some TRPG goodies in your shopping bag too!
I'm also looking forward to the RHS Chelsea fashion (oh I love the dresses, hats and linen suits!) and to see all the incredible designers and their gardens. (I'm also hoping I might get a glimpse of some celebs too- eeek!)
So with all the ups and downs of the past year, it is so lovely to have this incredible show in my diary and to have something incredible to work towards. As I write this I still need to finalise the exact look & feel of my stand design, exactly what my RHS Chelsea products are going to look like and I still need to decide what to include on the stand. I am still early on in the journey so my cash flow is less flow and more slow. However, some risks are worth taking and if I can make this work then it can be an absolute game changer for my brand. Sometimes the stars align and your heart says 'go for it'! I put my big girl pants on and clicked 'confirm'. I'm a big believer of visualising the future you want and being at RHS Chelsea Flower Show has been on my 'Vision Board' since I started my business. I never knew it would come around this quick- but sometimes things are just meant to be. *dances around the kitchen for days on end with excitement*
Please do come and say hi whilst I'm at RHS Chelsea Flower Show- seeing some friendly faces would mean so much.
Tickets are available to purchase on the RHS website.
In the meantime and whilst we wait for the RHS Chelsea show to begin, if you could share my brand and business with as many of your friends and family as physically possible, it would mean the world to me.
Thank you for all your support and 'see you at Chelsea'!
