Marketing manager Adam Parry said: “The stand looks fantastic, we have used a picture of one of our greenhouses, to mimic what it feels like to go into one of our greenhouses.”

Delamore, who have up to 180 staff at their Wisbech St Mary site, have held the royal warrant since 1983. “We have seen our relationship with Sandringham House grow over the years,” added Mr Parry.

“We started by supplying chrysanthemums to be used for cut flowers, and since Sandringham lost its greenhouses, we have been growing larger finished plants that can be planted directly into the ground.

“We supply thousands of hardy plants and bedding plants and we have a very strong relationship with the royal household. We work closely with the head gardeners, to establish new colour breaks. We try to promote our new varieties so Sandringham gets something different each year, for the public and the Queen to enjoy.

“You can’t buy a royal warrant, it is very prestigious, and is a mark of quality and innovation. We are delighted to take part in the Coronation Festival, to do some networking with other companies that hold the royal warrant, whether they are massive companies, or growers like us.
