Balcony and container gardens at RHS Chelsea

Balcony and Container Gardens is a mentored category open to designers who have never exhibited at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show

The Potting Balcony Garden at RHS Chelsea 2022
RHS Chelsea offers a unique opportunity to aspiring garden designers who are looking for a ‘foot in the door’ to exhibiting at a prestigious RHS Flower Show. 

Chelsea veteran designer Paul Hervey-Brookes will mentor the chosen designers as they bring their smaller gardens to life. Paul brings his vast experience of having both designed award-winning gardens and judged at all of the RHS Flower Shows.

Balcony Gardens

Balcony Gardens are an inspiration for how a small outdoor space can create a functional and interesting garden. Working within the 5m x 2m space, the design should use a variety of planting schemes and techniques to demonstrate exciting and clever ways to make most of your balcony.

Container Gardens

Container Gardens give flexible growing opportunities to people who choose to use containers rather than plant in the ground. The design would follow a client brief and balance creativity with practicality, making full use of the 4m x 3m space.
