the RHS Chelsea Flower Show – a look back

Ann-Marie Powell guest at the SodShow Garden Podcast
May 17, 2017

We cannot believe it has been one year already from the build of  Garden for Health, Happiness and Horticulture, the much-acclaimed garden that Ann-Marie Powell Gardens designed to promote the RHS Greening Grey Britain campaign at the prestigious RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Built by The Outdoor Room, the garden was very much loved by media and visitors alike – who were allowed to walk inside a Main Avenue show garden for the very first time!

The garden included bright coloured borders, a soothing water feature, a bee-friendly wildflower meadow and edible plants in pot. It was made possible by the contribute of some of the best UK suppliers such Hortus Loci, Moore Designs, Barbed, Livingreen design, Gaze Burvill, London Stone, Landscape Plus , just to mention some.
