RHS Peat-Free Garden

Feature Garden

The RHS Peat-Free Garden is full of colour and texture. The naturalistic planting mimics an untouched peatland before transitioning into a recognisable domestic garden, complete with shaded, as well as sun loving borders and beds.
All of the materials used in the design are recycled including a large greenhouse at its heart made from upcycled windows, borrowed paving, old railway sleepers and even a disused beehive serving as a bug hotel. Two large water butts collect rainwater from the greenhouse with the overflow channelled into a wildlife-friendly water feature and rain garden for future use during dry spells.
A series of talks and workshops will be hosted on the garden for visitors to help demystify the origins and use of growing media such as compost, mulch and soil improvers, advise on peat-free seed sowing and propagation and offer watering and care advice for peat-free potted plants.
