Most of the horticultural events aimed at gardeners take place in the spring and summer, but, as you can imagine, at that time of year, professional landscapers are often too busy to take a day off work to spend time wandering round flower shows.

MeadowMat wild flower matting. The living green roof in the
background was created using Enviromat sedum matting
Earlier this year Q Lawns exhibited at the BALI Landscape Show in Stoneleigh where MeadowMat and Enviromat both attracted a lot of attention from journalists, garden designers, landscaper contractors and horticultural students.
In a fortnight's time, on wednesday 28th September, both Enviromat and Meadowmat will be on display at Palmstead Nurseries in Ashford, Kent.
Following on from that, is what is promising to be a very exciting event the "Creating Landscapes" show at Capel Manor College near Enfield, North London, held on 25th and 26th October
Creating Landscapes is run by The Landscape Juice Network, a social networking site for landscape professionals and an excellent place to go for advice on any aspect of garden design, build and maintenance and on running a landscape business.
Check out the seminar program for the show - Angela is going to be talking about green roofing. Green roofing is an excellent way to support our pollinating insects and to make wildlife corridors in urban areas, but if it's wild flowers you're interested in - fear not! MeadowMat will be on the Q Lawns stand along with Angela, Chris, Kevin and Robert who can answer any questions you may have.
The show is free to visit, and if you pre-register online you may even be in with a chance of winning an i-pad 2
