Initiated by the University of Lincoln and Harfleet & Harfleet, Digital Capabilities is a garden that is connected to the internet.

The plot is divided diagonally by an electronic panelled screen that separates the planting into two areas: one visible and one concealed. The visible area of familiar plants consists of soft green shades and creamy-coloured flowers with a touch of pink and a zing of citrus. The planting beyond the panelled screen offers a contrast, with less familiar plants and large, dramatic leaves creating an exotic effect.

When Tweets discussing #RHSChelsea are detected, the panelled screen activates, revealing the concealed garden. The design represents the world of the internet, moderated and revealed by our desire for knowledge and interaction.
