Northamptonshire business to exhibit at RHS Hampton Court Palace

A Northamptonshire summerhouse manufacturer is in London next week to exhibit once again at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.

Scotts of Thrapston, which manufactures, supplies and installs timber summerhouses and garden buildings, will exhibit four summerhouse models, with the emphasis on its core range of buildings during the event, which runs from July 3 – July 8.

The stand will also showcase some of Scotts’ new fabrics, which have a Four Seasons theme – ‘Silver Birch’, to evoke a vision of Spring, cheerful ‘Love Birds’ inspired by Africa for the Summer, a ‘Nature’ design which focuses on woodland animals for Autumn, with the cushions including images of hedgehogs, deer, owls, foxes, pheasants and ducks and the ‘Woodland’ print which depict thistles and acorns for Winter.

To mark the launch of its new fabrics, Scotts is also supporting the British Hedgehog Preservation Society during the event. It will donate £25 for every set of ‘Nature’ cushions sold at this year’s RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.

The company will be working with Composite Prime, a leading UK distributor of composite wood/plastic decking, who have supplied HD Deck Dual for the summerhouses to stand on.

Scotts of Thrapston is also continuing its link-up with Solar Technology International to provide a lighting system for their outdoor living spaces as part of a new package.

Kathryn Morris, spokeswoman for Scotts of Thrapston, said: “Whilst summerhouses are traditionally associated with the hotter months, hence their name, we are keen to show that these garden buildings are truly functional throughout the year.

“Having an effective and efficient lighting system opens up extensive usage, not only on a balmy summer’s evening, but throughout the spring, autumn and winter months. Plus, solar lighting saves the hassle and expense of supplying mains electrics to the bottom of the garden and is great for properties where an electric supply outside is not an option.”
