Accoya selected by Hampton Court Flower Show exhibitor5 July 2018
Accoya modified wood is the material of choice for bespoke joinery company Cultivar at this year’s Hampton Court Flower Show which runs from until July 8.
On its stand, visitors will see Shoji screens framed with Accoya, twinned with slatted Japanese bath house style fencing, with the piece-de-resistance being an Accoya Japanese pergola that will lead onto the stand in grand Shinto style.
All of the Accoya used to craftCultivar’s timber greenhouses – and the impressive pergola – is planed to a smooth finish, offering a pale and consistent colour. The pergola will stand out at the show that for decades has been dominated by hardwoods such as western red cedar.
In addition to the pergola, Cultivar is showcasing a traditional wooden Planthouse made from Accoya, planted with orchids. The partitioned area will allow two separate growing conditions, alongside two non-wood versions.
“Accoya is the only wood we use,” said Daniel Carruthersof Cultivar. “Like our greenhouses, the pergola has been designed in such a way that it is relatively quick to construct making it simple to assemble on site.”
