RHS Hampton Gardens of inspiration and celebration

RHS Adventure Within Garden
RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival 2024 celebrates anniversaries, international inspiration, and gardening for wildlife as the festival returns to the historic Hampton Court Palace from 2-7 July.

Feature gardens

RHS Friendship Garden
Marking the 60th anniversary of RHS Britain in Bloom, the
RHS Britain in Bloom 60th Anniversary: Gardening for People and Planet, designed by father and son duo Jon and James Wheatley, celebrates the relationships that form when people garden together in their communities. Also making an appearance at RHS Chelsea Flower Show in May, the garden is packed with native and British grown plants alongside beehives to increase biodiversity.


“Bringing gardening traditions of other countries to the classically British setting of Hampton Court Palace.”
-Show Manager Natalie Gearing

Former Young Designer of the Year, Freddie Strickland, invites visitors to travel through the conceptual design and reconnect with a sense of childhood playfulness in his  RHS Adventure Within Garden.

 Shows celebrated

The Lion King Anniversary Garden
Celebrating the 25th anniversary of Disney’s The Lion King in London’s West End, Juliet Sargeant is drawing inspiration from the award-winning production’s bright colours and the African savannah for
The Lion King Anniversary Garden with dusty red soil planted with swathes of resilient grasses and vibrant, drought tolerant flowers.


 Get Started Gardens go global

The Climate-Forward Garden
Also drawing inspiration from hotter climates, The Climate-Forward Garden by Melanie Hick in the Get Started Gardens category looks to the Australian bush.  Reimagining a UK front garden into a stylish yet climate conscious green space, complete with typically Australian gum and crepe myrtle trees.

The Mediterraneo Garden
Looking to the Mediterranean, The Mediterraneo Garden designed by Katerina Kantalis draws on the gardening traditions of Greece with drought tolerant plants nestled in and amongst terracotta pots. Nilufer Danis’ The Way of Saint James seeks to capture the mystical essence of Galicia’s forests, while supporting biodiversity by creating habitat for insects and wildlife.

Building biodiversity

Oliver Bond takes inspiration from closer to home for Bond Landscape Design: Match Point, a garden featuring a tennis court and green, purple and white planting with nectar rich plants to support biodiversity.  Tim Jennings’ A Four Season Sanctuary features a pond to demonstrate the value they provide to wildlife and Giada Francois’ The Garden of Renewal is packed with naturalistic planting.
Natalie Gearing, RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival Manager, says: “There is such a variety of ideas at this year’s festival, from bringing gardening traditions of other countries to the classically British setting of Hampton Court Palace, to celebrating anniversaries of beloved institutions through garden design. There will be inspiration to suit all styles, abilities, and garden size.”
