Leading exhibitors to fly the Rolawn flag as it becomes proud sponsor of the RHS Malvern Spring Festival 2018

A total of 13 exhibitors at this year's RHS Malvern Spring Festival (10th - 13th May at the Three Counties Showground, Malvern), will fly the Rolawn flag by choosing its market-leading range of premium turf and soft landscaping products for their show gardens and displays, as part of the brand's first official sponsorship of the show.

Leading designers specifying Rolawn for their showpieces include Peter Dowle, a multiple RHS show winner and proud custodian of the biggest show garden at Malvern, planting into Rolawn's flagship Blended Loam and laying 300 square metres of premium Medallion show turf. Other exhibitors opting for Rolawn to bring their creations to life include the RAF Centenary Garden ‘Memories of Service' by Wilson Garden Design, The Collectors Garden by Olivia Kirk Gardens, Green Living Spaces headed by RHS Ambassador Jamie Butterworth, and, last but not least, Bloms Bulbs, winners of 66 Chelsea Gold Medals, which will be using 75 square metres of Medallion as part of its stunning tulip display in the Floral Pavilion.

As well as supplying a total of over 800 square metres of Medallion turf and more than 90 bulk bags of blended loam topsoil, mulch, bark and soil improver to show designers and contractors across the showground, Rolawn will also take up its own display spot at Malvern. Visitors to the Rolawn stand will be able to get up close to their products and understand the story behind the ‘Topsoil you can trust' message - encouraging customers to question the provenance and make-up of the product they are buying in order to ensure that it is safe, fertile, consistent and certified. As Britain's leading supplier of premium topsoil, Rolawn's product is blended and tested to meet and exceed the most stringent independently-verified standards, giving customers complete peace of mind that it is safe and fit for purpose. Visitors to the stand will also have the chance to enter the Rolawn ‘Grow challenge', to win two places at an Adam Frost, BBC gardening presenter, Garden School masterclass.

Rolawn's Managing Director, Paul Dawson comments: "RHS Malvern is one of the highlights of the horticultural calendar, and an event which we have been very proud to be associated with for some time. This year we're delighted to take our involvement one step further by becoming an official supporter and we are very much looking forward to marvelling at the beauty of the show gardens and displays in the knowledge that Rolawn products form the foundation of so many of them."

Visitors to Malvern might also spot several areas of fresh natural green carpet around the showground. The show's organisers, Three Counties, recently replaced 600 square metres of turf ahead of this year's event, once again with the professional's choice - Medallion.

The RHS Malvern Festival 2018 runs from 10th - 13th May at the Three Counties Showground, Malvern. For further information please visit
