At last year’s Chelsea Flower Show, Skye Instruments loaned Penny Riley, Garden Designer, a MiniMet AWS for her stand. The stand was a celebration of seasonal fruit, vegetables, cut flowers, salads, herbs and other plants produced by British growers and sponsored by the NFU and Waitrose.
It marks the 16th year in a row that designer Penny Riley has walked away with one of the top honours at the world-renowned show and the second gold in a row since the NFU teamed up with Waitrose last year.
The ‘Celebrating the Best of British Summertime’ stand, was visited by celebrities such as Nigel Havers, Jennie Bond, Martin Clunes, Lawrence Llewellyn-Bowen and many more, and was designed with the Queen’s Jubilee in mind, reflecting the last 60 years in the world of horticulture. The Skye MiniMet was an integral part of the winning exhibit, with Skye Instruments is planning to help again this year.
And then a few weeks later, Penny and her team reproduced a similar stand at the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show and took Gold again, with a Skye Instruments MiniMet again being an integral part of the winning stand. We now have this MiniMet that was part of the winning stand at these flower shows last year for sale. How would you like to have a winning MiniMet as part of your equipment?
