Wilstone returns to Chelsea 2022
After a turbulent couple of years of global pandemic, Wilstone are delighted to be returning to Chelsea Flower show this year. As the world returns to its closest version of normality, Wilstone have delved head-first into show season this month, and Chelsea 2022 hopes to be the biggest and best yet!
Wilstone has been a Chelsea firm favourite for over ten years, exciting and delighting guests with our five-star, award winning stand designs. Bringing you a taste of India to the majestic landscape of Chelsea flower show.
A fabulous fusion of antique Indian architecture, innovative and beautiful garden products, clever horticulture and the coveted Kadai Firebowls range. Each year the stand design emanates a feeling of calm serenity.
On the Stand
We will be proudly showcasing our new garden range which features exciting products such as beautifully crafted plant supports, growing frames, decorative gazebos and reclaimed furniture. All designed with sustainability and functionality in mind.
Wilstone will also be celebrating the award-winning designs from past Years, such as:

• Potting Table People's Choice Award Winner 2020
Made from galvanised steel and reclaimed teak this Potting Table was created with practical durability in mind. An attractive edition to any keen gardener’s collection. Uniquely designed with a sliding worktop that reveals a compost store, trowel hook, substantial shelf for storing pots and two drawers for seeds, tools, etc.
Based on traditional designs and made to last from solid mild steel, sustainable hardwood and galvanised metal, the Wilstone Garden Range includes everything you need for a stylish garden. From starting off seedlings, feeding the soil, protecting or supporting their growth and all with durable practicality in mind.
Christo Mckinnon-Wood, founder of Wilstone, said: "I have a passion for gardening and I wanted to use this to create a range of products that gets people excited and proud of their green oasis; also, a place away from the distractions of today's World. The cohesion between the products in this range means that everything works and looks beautiful together. I hope it encourages people to grow their own vegetables and fall in love with gardening as much as I do."
All of the unique pieces you see on the stand, have been carefully selected in Northern India, and respectfully salvaged in order to preserve the rich history of its origin. Wilstone founder, Christo, has been travelling throughout India since the early 90’s. Developing a deep love of the Country led him back many times over the Years, and by combining his love of Inida and his expertise in the antiques trade, Christo has been able to discover and hand-source a myriad of unique, historical and truly beautiful pieces.
This passion has led to Wilstone winning several five star stand awards over the Years, something we are incredibly proud of. The combined efforts of the build team and Christo's design vision have led to some stunning creations!
We have been lucky enough to welcome a few famous faces to our stand over the Years at Chelsea Flower Show, and we were particularly touched to have been visited by His Royal Highness Prince Phillip. Here is Wilstone founder Christo deep in conversation with HRH Prince Phillip in 2012 . We will greatly miss his visits to the stand.
