Northamptonshire-based timber building specialists Scotts of Thrapston has been recognised with a five-star award for its stand at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. This year marks 60 years since Scotts first exhibited at the event to showcase its luxury summerhouse collection.

Coveted trade stand awards are presented to exhibitors that demonstrate impressive stand design and presentation. Scotts was proud to be rewarded with the highest accolade of a five-star award for the first time since 2017.

The stand featured four of Scotts’ premium garden buildings with additional models on display in miniature as part of the landscaping. Themes included a midsummer reading nook, a coastal dining experience, and a gentleman’s retreat.

“We would also like to thank interior designer Diana Irving, founder and creative director of Marblehead Home, who helped to curate our summerhouse collection. Soft furnishings were supplied by our longstanding local partners Inspired Interiors also based in Thrapston. Paving materials were supplied by Arbour Landscape Solutions.

“Being able to showcase our summerhouses at the Chelsea Flower Show has been an important milestone for Scotts over the last 60 years. New for this year, a series of miniature summerhouse models enabled visitors to see all our structures in detail.

“Our new miniature range reflects the expertise, skill and attention to detail that goes into our hand-crafted luxury summerhouses with their classic, timeless designs.”
