A FAMILY-run business based in Dolanog has supplied feature stones for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2018.

Mid-Wales Stone will be used as part of the Myeloma UK Garden by RHS Gold medal winning designers John Everiss and Francesca Murrell.

The garden aims to give a positive message about the fight against myeloma, a blood cancer, which is not yet curable.

A 12-feet high head and shoulder sculpture in the centre of the garden represents the role of the carer of a patient with myeloma.

The sculpture’s left hand is pushing away boulders which represent plasma cells and the obstacles people face in care when they suffer with myeloma. The boulders, supplied by Mid-Wales Stone, weigh up to two tonnes each.

Last year, Mid-Wales Stone supplied stones for the famous garden show.

“We were very grateful that our fantastic products have been selected,” says owner Clive Richards.

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to do the same again. It’s very exciting for us.”

Mid-Wales Stone also supplied the 10 foot standing stone monolith, originating from Pen Llyn, for the World War One memorial garden on Chirbury Road in Montgomery.

The business was formed over 22 years ago and have built a considerable level of knowledge when it comes to sourcing and supplying a wide range of natural stone from all over Wales.

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show, one of the most famous flower and landscape garden shows in the world, begins on Tuesday, May 22, and is held for five days.
