Take home inspiration from the gardens
This year sees the return of our Mindfulness Gardens, a popular category launched in 2019 to celebrate the benefits of gardens and outdoor spaces for our health and wellbeing. You’ll be able to find plenty of inspiration for creating your own outdoor sanctuary at home with these designs.
Five special gardens offer spaces of tranquility and escape. Be sure to look out for first-time designer James Hutchison's A Reflective Garden featuring a long, tranquil pool at the centre and an intimate summerhouse, providing private space to reflect.
We’ll also have a range of eye-catching Show Gardens, which combine the best of horticulture with stunning design and innovative landscaping. You’ll find plenty of ideas to keep you busy in the garden all summer long.
By popular demand the Long Borders are back. The 15 colourful designs show an array of emotions, brought to life through imaginative planting designs. See how fear is portrayed, and joy, a welcoming contrast.
The RHS Feature Gardens are full of inspiration and include a ‘Rewilding Garden’ by RHS Gold Medal-winning designer Phil Hirst, which explores how people can encourage a natural biodiversity into their gardens. Multi award-winning designer Matt Childs advocates the power plants can have on reducing flooding with a garden installation packed with inspiration for gardeners to take away.
Alexandra Noble’s Edible Flower Garden will bring sustainability, soil health and organic produce to the fore in a display that promises to be both practical and beautiful.
Providing the impressive backdrop to our Derbyshire show is Chatsworth House, home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire.
The house has been passed down through 16 generations of the Cavendish family. It is renowned for the quality of its art and landscape and contains works of art that span 4,000 years, from Ancient Roman and Egyptian sculpture, and masterpieces by Rembrandt, Reynolds and Veronese, to work by outstanding modern artists, including Lucian Freud, Edmund de Waal and David Nash.
