RHS Back to Nature

Feature Garden
The RHS Back to Nature Garden finds a new home at this year’s RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival, as it continues to encourage families and communities to engage with nature and spend time in the great outdoors.

The design is inspired by the original RHS Chelsea garden with many of the key features such as the waterfall, dens and hollow log returning, alongside new elements including a wildflower meadow, rolling  hill and summer planting.

As with the original RHS Back to Nature Garden, this garden aims to highlight how time spent in natural environments can help in building the foundations for positive physical and mental wellbeing that last through childhood and over a lifetime. These environments enable children to develop skills for life through active play, building confidence, strength, creativity and resilience.

In addition to the physical and mental health benefits of being in nature, spending quality time with parents and carers outside has a valuable impact on children’s early development.
