Recent awards include the Director General’s Linley award, awarded twice, including in its inaugural year in 2018, in addition to 5 Stars every year since 2016. The Hartley Botanic Calm & Wellbeing stand has been built and planted by Stewart Landscape Construction with design and styling by Llevelo Garden Design.

Of the 5 Star award, Tom Barry, CEO of Hartley Botanic said; “We are absolutely delighted to have received this award, at what is a return to the classic and much-loved May Chelsea Flower Show. I am incredibly proud of the whole team who have managed to convey such a serene, tranquil atmosphere – capturing the essence of what many gardeners want from their outdoor spaces in 2022. A Hartley Botanic Glasshouse really does provide a sanctuary in the garden. Whether that’s to drink a cup of tea amongst your plants while it rains, or to build your own highly personal plant collection, we know our structures add to our customers’ wellbeing and we wanted this communicated through our stand.”

Hartley Botanic was founded in 1938 by brothers Vincent (RHS fellow) and Norman Hartley following their ground-breaking aluminium Greenhouse design, the first time (to our knowledge) aluminium had been used in Greenhouse construction and marking a huge improvement on its wood and wrought iron Victorian forerunners. The English manufacturer is an authority on Greenhouse design and use over the decades, having been making its beautiful and elegant handmade, made-to-order horticultural buildings for over 84 years from its original factory at the base of the dramatic Pennines’ Chew Valley in Greenfield, Lancashire. It has become synonymous for crafting the finest Greenhouses money can buy through the very highest standards of hard-won experience, craftsmanship and service. A hugely respected brand within the horticultural world, it is the manufacturer of choice for leading organisations, institutions and designers with Hartley Botanic structures commissioned by the RHS, the National Trust, Kew Gardens, Glasgow Botanic Gardens, Massachusetts Horticultural Society, Oxford Botanical Gardens, Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons, Blenheim Palace, The Lingholm Estate and Hampton Court name a few. Its entire product range is endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society.

All Hartley Botanic’s Glasshouses and Greenhouses are handmade, bespoke and made to order. Customers interested in purchasing a Hartley Botanic Greenhouse should visit: or call 01457 819 155 for more information.
