Sustainable and beautiful

The eight Show gardens and eight Sanctuary gardens bring both resilience and joy to the show, with planting schemes and cutting-edge designs, which promise to provide beautiful floral displays and inspiring take-home ideas.

With a relocation plan and a sustainability calculation in place for every garden at the show, 2024 sees a renewed commitment by the RHS; leading the way in championing responsible and innovative techniques in horticulture.

Celebrating trees

This year’s must-see gardens of the Show are delivered by an incredible line-up of both established medal-winning designers, and fresh faces, cutting the turf at Chelsea for the first time.

RHS Chelsea veteran Tom Stuart-Smith’s National Garden Scheme Garden celebrates the majesty of native British woodland with a hazel coppice and underplanting, some of which has been supplied by National Garden Scheme garden owners.

Muscular Dystrophy UK’s Forest Bathing Garden, designed by Ula Maria, harnesses the therapeutic power of nature, with over 40 birch trees enveloping the garden, creating an oasis of tranquillity in the middle of London.

Using water wisely

Designer Tom Massey and architect Je Ahn unite to create a vision of what garden water management could look like in the future in their WaterAid Garden, using resilient planting and cutting-edge technology to deal with a changing climate.

The Flood Re: The Flood Resilient Garden by Naomi Slade & Ed Barsley turns the problem of too much water into a beautiful opportunity, with lush foliage and colourful planting.

The joy of gardens

The Boodles Garden is a feast for the eyes and the soul. Designer Catherine MacDonald uses plants as her paints to celebrate great works of art. While Ann-Marie Powell and the Blue Diamond team celebrate the universality of enjoying wildlife and access to green spaces, with their tribute to a renowned social reformer, in The Octavia Hill Garden by Blue Diamond with The National Trust.
