Flower Show, Chelsea, London, England
23 - 26, 2000
Bailey, owner of Green Affairs, was the official plant coordinator when
Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden debuted at the world famous Chelsea Flower
Show in May 2000. George's previous experience with the logistics of packing
and shipping plants to international destinations made him the natural
choice. He and Fairchild's conservatory manager, Craig M. Allen, selected
palms, aroids, alocasias and a wide variety of tropical plants for the
display. The 28 foot by 34 foot display garden was assembled in a few short
days prior to the gala opening attended by the queen and the royal family.
More than 170,000 people attended the four-day gardening show.
