Harrogate florist celebrates RHS Chelsea Flower Show triumph
Helen James Flowers has been awarded a silver medal at the prestigious RHS Chelsea Flower Show after the Harrogate florist shop showed how to go green in style.
Located at 63 Station Parade on Harrogate’s historic Prince Albert Row, this multi-award-winning florist has taken an imaginative approach to this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show brief.
Under the title “Roots for Life”, the mandate was to design and create a tablescape.
Sustainable techniques and methods had to be used in the design, as floral foams and oil-based plastics are now banned from RHS Shows.
The end result of the efforts of Helen James and her daughter Laura called ‘Natures Table’ received much praise from the judges and was a big winner with the public who visited the show and viewed the exhibit in nobody.
A florist for 37 years, Helen is already a gold medalist at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
Her boutique prides itself on offering classic and contemporary wedding flowers, funeral flowers and flowers for other occasions.
During the week of the show, Helen posted on the store’s Facebook:
“What a fantastic time we had at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show!
“It was a great week, we made lots of new florist friends and met so many lovely people who visit the show.
“I’m so grateful for all of Laura and Andy’s time and hard work…it was truly a team effort.”
