‘If the bee disappeared off the surface of the Globe, then man would have only four years of life left.’ – Albert Einstein
Einstein’s prophetic message was seen by thousands of garden enthusiasts last week, thanks to the Global Stone Bee Friendly Garden at Chelsea Flower Show. Mackman have been managing the garden’s PR and publicity from the start, and we are delighted to announce that the garden won a Silver Medal at the show.
Following sustained coverage in national and local media up to the event, the garden was also featured on BBC’s Chelsea Flower Show programme twice during the week, and was profiled by Kate Humble on the BBC’s flagship morning news programme Breakfast. It also feature on the local television news and on BBC radio as well as in the national press and amongst an ‘Editor’s Top Five’ for glossy magazine ‘Houses and Gardens’.
‘We’re really honoured to receive this award,’ said the garden’s designer, Janey Auchincloss, who works from Lavenham. ‘It’s the first year we’ve been to Chelsea and it’s a real achievement to do so well. All the hard work and heartache has really paid off!’
