May 2018 – Hillier is once again celebrating extending its world-record for having received the most consecutive gold medals in the history of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
The company, which is the most successful exhibitor that Chelsea has ever had, has increased its winning run to 73 gold medals.
This year’s medal was awarded to the Hillier team, for its “Stihl Inspiration” by Hillier garden, designed by Sarah Eberle. The gold was made all the more special as, not only did Hillier create its award-winning main garden, but the team also took on a second creation with its “A Royal Celebration by Hillier” installation.
A beaming George Hillier enthused: “We are absolutely thrilled to have received this gold. We get asked if we get complacent about getting gold, if anything it’s the opposite. Each year nerves and anticipation seem to run higher than ever as we have the increased pressure of not letting the title slip away. Thankfully we have a fantastic team, and are incredibly fortunate to be working with Sarah, a very talented designer. Everyone at Hillier works so hard all year round to make Chelsea happen and this is a truly wonderful recognition of that.”
