All the main garden categories are returning in 2024.  As well as the Show Gardens along Main Avenue, Sanctuary and Feature Gardens explore themes through horticulture, while the All About Plants area in the Floral Marquee focuses on planting.

For smaller spaces, the Balcony and Container Gardens provide lots of inspiration for renters and urban gardeners. For plant-lovers there’s the opportunity to get lost in the Floral Marquee for the day, picking the brains of expert growers and admiring the incredible creations of the floral artists.

“This year at Chelsea, I am really looking forward to seeing some of our key RHS messages take centre stage, from education to science to community,” says show manager Gemma Lake.  “We will have a bumper show, full of our favourite growers, designers, florists and scientists – the Great Pavilion will be overflowing with scent and colour.”

“We are proving that great design and sustainability go hand in hand” – Gemma Lake, Chelsea Show Manager

Trying to reduce the environmental impact of the RHS Shows has been a priority for many years, and the next show will see the investment in time and expertise begin to pay off, as garden builds and relocations are focused on green goals. Gemma explains, “This year we are working closely with all our garden designers to bring the most sustainable gardens we can to the show. They are using eco- techniques, low carbon materials and processes that are not only reducing their impact on the environment, but also reducing our waste at the end of the show.

“Every garden has a final relocation post-show where communities around the country will gain from having a beautifully designed space.  We are proving that great design and sustainability go hand in hand and I can’t wait to see all the gardens at the show.”
