BALI reveals extensive events programme for 2018
The British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) is gearing up for a monumental industry event season for 2018, with two feature gardens, two trade villages and a plethora of seminars and surprises still under wraps.
Starting on Wednesday 10th May 2018, BALI's Landscape House team will be making there way towards the spectacular Malvern Hills for the RHS Malvern Spring Festival which is open until Sunday 13th May 2018.
This year, the association is proud to announce it is working with BALI Designer member Jane Bingham of The Cheshire Garden Landscape Design and James Brash of BALI Registered Isola Garden Design to design and build a garden trade stand celebrating the quintessential English country garden. At 5m wide by 4m deep, the plot, which sits amongst this year's show gardens, will feature a host of BALI member products, including trough hedging courtesy of Ready Hedge, quality cast stone sculptures from Haddonstone, green screens from Green-tech, topiary, shrubs and plants from Hereford-based Wyevale Nurseries, stunning National Trust paving and decorative aggregate from Westminster Stone, topsoil from British Sugar TOPSOIL and three arches from Harrod UK. The garden will be open to the public during the show days, with BALI members on-hand to support the association by providing information about the products to members of the public, to raise the awareness of the association and the services provided by those involved.
BALI's Marketing and Communications Manager, Darren Taylor, commented; 'Having exhibited at several flower shows over the past two years since being in post at BALI, it is apparently clear that one of the best ways of raising the awareness of our brand and public profile is to work with members to design and build a garden that acts as a real showcase for what our members can achieve when design, build and supply truly comes together. Malvern is no different, and we are delighted that so many of our members have supported us with this venture. Certainly a great way to kick-off the year'.
