The Posh Shed Company at Hampton Court

Posh Sheds have always been just that bit special. It’s something that the team here at The Posh Shed Company are incredibly proud of and we’re always looking for great ways to bring that special-ness out of the workshop for all to admire.

Which is why we’re returning to the brilliant RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show for the 4th year running.

This year promises to be the biggest show yet; with hundreds of exhibitors showing off their gardens, plants, accessories and gardening gadgets from around the globe, more than 20 gorgeous gardens and some new things too!

What’s New at Hampton for 2018?

Horticultural Heroes- A new feature which celebrates amazing horticulturalists from around the world. This year influential Dutch garden designer and a leading figure of the New Perennial type of planting, Piet Oudolf, will be creating a whimsical walk-through feature for our delight and enjoyment.

The beautiful border will sit opposite the Palace, using favourite plants such as Astilbe, Schizachyrium and Monarda - all coming together in a romantic display of colour and texture.

 The Roots of Time- Ever wondered what the first plants on earth were or pondered how we have such a rich diversity of plants today? To answer these questions, a theatrical and interactive feature has been created to explore the evolution of plants through the ages.

From the earliest organisms, through ferns and to the rich flora we enjoy today, this fascinating display will take you on an incredible journey telling the story of plants – from seedling to leafy giant.

Shopping- As well as taking in the brilliant variety of inspirational gardens and, of course, the annual Festival of Roses, if we’re not on our stand we’ll be off shopping in the fabulous Floral Marquee. We’re promised a host of brand new floral exhibitors for this year as well as a veritable bouquet of choice in the Plant Village too.

It’s not just sheds that The Posh Shed Company specialise in, there is something for every budget, from planters to sheds, so every Dad can have a posh gift this year!

Posh Planters

Posh Planters are made from FSC preserved timber, are extremely hard wearing and are available in a great range of colours.  There are three sizes available and they are supplied with an internal plastic pot and slatted tanolised bases.

The Garden Chair is the perfect spot for Dad to rest his weary self after a hard day’s gardening.Garden Chair

Available with a variety of messages, the customised treated wood throne is ideal for giving Dad his well-deserved place in the garden for years to come. 

The posh Gothic Boot Store is perfect for stowing away muddy boots before they have a chance to traipse through the house!

Where to see us in 2018

Where to Find a Posh Shed in 2018

We’re often asked if we have a showroom for our Posh Sheds – with eleven standard designs and hundreds of different variations (not to mention the thousands of bespoke options we offer!) we’d need a really, REALLY big space.

Of course, visitors are always welcome to pop by for a cup of tea and a digestive in our Herefordshire workshop; but we do realise that isn’t an option for everyone, which is why we try and get out and about as much as we can, so you can get a really good look at the superior quality (and gorgeous colours) of our beautiful sheds and Posh Gardening accessories.

This summer you’ll be able to come and see us at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show, we’ll be on stand 448 along with our NGS, Southwold, Gothic and Potting Shed designs as well as some of our Posh Gardening Bird Boxes, Gardener’s Chair and Back Door Stores.

We’re also supporters of the NGS and have our NGS design in several of the open gardens around the country, so you’re sure to find one near you. You can find the full list here.

You’ll find our two Tin Hat designs and the Potting Shed with cedar shingle displayed among the fabulous conservatories, summerhouses and log cabins.
