There are three different categories at RHS Flower Show Birmingham at BBC Gardeners' World Live:

Show Gardens

Over 25sqm

Show Gardens are the jewels in the crown at BBC Gardeners’ World Live and are incredibly popular with both visitors and the media. Show Gardens can be of any shape (over 25sqm) or theme from traditional to pure futuristic fantasy. Given the freedom of imagination and the individuality of sponsors we encourage designers to create dramatic and innovation gardens, which could attract a considerable amount of press coverage.

Outdoor Living Gardens

36sqm and under (min 25sqm)

Outdoor Living Gardens at BBC Gardeners’ World Live are an integral and extremely popular part of the show. They provide an excellent opportunity for smaller landscape contractors/architects, colleges/students, nurseries, and garden designers or potential Show Garden exhibitors not currently in a position to stage a full scale Show Garden to introduce or further enhance their profile.

The design for an Outdoor Living Garden can represent either a complete garden or a self-contained section/element of a larger garden. Designers will find exhibiting an ideal way to demonstrate their skills in a creative and cost-effective way, encouraging visitors to use the services of a professional designer.

CityScape/RuralEscape Gardens

5m x 5m

Designs can be of contemporary or traditional style and each 5x5m garden will come with a pre-printed backdrop of a city skyline or a rural scene. The designer may choose between CityScape and RuralEscape and should then ensure that the backdrop is incorporated into their design in a creative and thoughtful way.
