ASHBOURNE: Decorative paving and walling products manufacturer Bradstone, is to appear at the Chelsea Flower Show in London on 19-23 May.

As part of the company's sponsorship of the Chris Beardshaw Mentoring Scholarship (CBMS), it has provided materials for 'Dawn Chorus', a garden designed by Chris Beardshaw and current scholar, Lindsay Anglin. Key features of 'Dawn Chorus' include Bradstone's limestone Tuscan columns, limestone shards in the water pool and Cotswold slates. 

The Chelsea Flower Show is a major event in the gardening calendar, the RHS Chelsea Flower Show regularly attracts 157 000 paying visitors, comprising of professional landscapers and gardening enthusiasts. Exhibitors come from around the world, representing the very best in garden design and highlighting the latest trends and products. With the most comprehensive media coverage of any gardening event, the Chelsea Flower Show is definitely the place to be seen.

Group chief executive of Aggregate Industries Bill Bolsover said: "The Chris Beardshaw Mentoring Scholarship is an important partnership for Bradstone and provides a strong commercial platform for our products amongst our key target market. There is currently a trend to improve rather than move resulting in a demand for innovative products which can transform a garden quickly and easily. We will be showcasing a range of products that meet this requirement at Chelsea and expect lots of interest in our products following the show."
