Bord na Móna Growise Sponsors Myeloma UK Garden at Chelsea Flower Show
GTN Xtra Promotion

Chelsea 2018 210518_GTN090.jpg

Bord na Móna Growise would like to congratulate John Everiss and Francesca Murrell winners of Silver Gilt medal for their design of The Myeloma UK Garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2018.  RHS Gold medal winners John Everiss and Francesca Murrell  conceptualised the design of the garden which raises awareness about myeloma, a form of blood cancer originating in the bone marrow, which, while treatable, is not yet curable. Bord na Móna Growise is a proud sponsor of The Myeloma UK Garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2018.


Bord na Móna Growise has donated its award winning product which is a key ingredient to the garden’s make up, and contains all the essential plant nutrients and trace elements to ensure bigger, brighter blooms and healthy plants.


Rising from the centre of the garden is a giant sculpture, which is set to stand at 12 feet high. This was constructed from layers of transparent blue Perspex® acrylic. The design team part-assembled the sculpture ahead of the show and, as the gates at Chelsea are nine feet high, was fully constructed on the grounds. The garden is nearly 40 x 20 feet and located in the Space to Grow section.


About the Bord na Móna Growise brand:

  • Bord na Móna Growise is at the forefront of developing top quality growing media.
  • The range includes peat-free and peat-reduced multipurpose composts, specialist composts and grow-your-own planters, in addition to a range of barks, soil improvers and fertilisers.
  • Bord na Móna Growise is the partnership of nature and technology, with a focus on sustainable and responsible product, and investment in eco–technology. Bord na Móna uses sustainable materials to produce eco-friendly fuels, using composted green waste for making its growing media and soil improvers.
  • Bord na Móna Growise uses clean, green waste – last season’s plants, grass cuttings and hedge clippings – forestry by-products and naturally sourced nitrogen, using computer-controlled technology to ensure the mix is completely sanitized and free from weed seeds, pathogens and contamination.
