The Great Outdoors RHS Chatsworth Show Garden 2018

Show Gardens 

Show Gardens give designers the stage to showcase their skill, flair and imagination, informing the gardening world what’s going to be hot this season.

They also provide the opportunity to share untold stories through design. A garden can be an extremely evocative medium to connect with an audience on multiple levels and share a message; a brand vision; a marketing campaign; a call to action; the opportunities are limitless!

If you are considering submitting a design for 2019 or future years and have any queries please call us on 0207 821 3198.

Applications for the 2019 Show Gardens are now closed.

Long Borders (applications live) 

Returning for a second year at RHS Chatsworth Flower Show, the Long Borders take inspiration from the borders of great gardens such as Haddon Hall, RHS Garden Wisley, Great Dixter and Hever Castle.

Long Borders provide the opportunity for plant enthusiasts of all backgrounds including students, garden designers, community groups and other talented individuals, enabling them to experience the design, planning and build of a horticultural exhibit within a show environment.

If you're considering submitting a Long Border design and would like to talk about the application process and your ideas, please contact Esta Morris (Deputy Show Manager) estamorris@rhs.org.uk or 0207 821 3128.
