Another Chelsea Win for Ambius


Ambius boosted its bank of industry awards yesterday by scooping a prestigious Silver Gilt medal at the 2008 Chelsea Flower Show for its dazzling display of tropical flora and foliage. The only interior landscaping company invited to exhibit at Chelsea, Ambius was judged among entries from the crème of garden and horticultural companies to take the award.

The stunning display incorporates eye-catching Bromeliads, Codiaeum variegatum (Mrs Icetone variety) and Orchids in dramatic colours more associated with tropical climes. The stunning shades are enhanced and contrasted with the gentle hues of silver-grey and green foliage, including the rare Australian Grass Tree. The award winning exhibit, which will be on display at stand GPA 1 within the Show’s Grand Pavilion Marquee until 24 May, will act as the company’s shop window with all species on display and available for hire by the company’s customers.
The exhibit was designed, built and displayed by Ambius UK Projects Manager, Paul Sturgess who comments: “Visitors have not only loved the plants, but also the containers that hold them and have been amazed to learn that everything on the stand is among the great variety of species and containers that are available from Ambius.”

Paul Cochrane, UK managing director, Ambius, added: “It is a privilege to be invited to display at this world renowned horticultural event, but to scoop a win further demonstrates that our company is a market leader in enhancing indoor environments. This accolade is testament to the hard work of all our employees but particularly the team in our Bath nursery, the nerve centre of our horticultural excellence. We will now be looking to replicate this horticultural in other industry events that cover our broader product portfolio.”

The Ambius service portfolio which builds on the company’s 21 years’ experience of designing, installing and servicing interior plants. The expanded product portfolio, to become available in all markets, will include the provision of ambient scenting, corporate artwork and other products that improve workplace environments and employee well being. For instance, in the UK, the brand recently launched Premium Scenting, an ambient scenting product that customers are using  for scent marketing and brand scenting.

The Show, regarded as the most prestigious of its kind and visited by the Royal Family, is held in London during May. It attracts visitors from all over the world, and is seen as the unofficial start of the English Summer ‘Season’. Ambius will also take out exhibition space at Gardener’s World, NEC (11-15 June) and Hampton Court (8-13 July).
