Brewin Dolphin host special Chelsea Flower Show event at Mamhead House

April 21, 2016

Wealth management company Brewin Dolphin invited 90 clients from across Devon and Somerset, to a special pre Chelsea Flower Show event, held at prestigious Mamhead House, Exeter. It ’s the fifth consecutive year Brewin Dolphin has sponsored a ‘show garden’ at Chelsea Flower Show, and this year it is designed by eminent and award-winning nurserywoman Rosy Hardy, entitled ‘Forever Freefolk’.

Guests enjoyed coffee and pastries on arrival and an audience with the 20 RHS Chelsea gold medal-winner. Rosy shared the creative design of the Brewin Dolphin garden, as well as the challenges and triumphs along the way. The garden is designed to be a sensual, accessible and thought provoking educational experience, showcasing more than one brand new plant introduction and some breathtakingly beautiful features.

Richard Fuller, co-owner of Mamhead gave an insight in to the long and rich history of the Grade I listed Georgian house and 164-acre estate. He linked this to the influence of Capability Brown on the gardens, given this is the 300th anniversary of one of our most celebrated English landscape designers.

A talk and wine tasting by Nicholas Coates of Coates & Seely English sparkling wines, was followed by lunch in the Great Hall and the day culminated in a guided tour of the house and gardens.
