The gold medal winning garden in the Great Pavilion, Chelsea Flower Show 2023, featuring plants grown by Katie's Garden at our Suffolk nursery!
It couldn't have gone any better: The Talitha Arts Garden was not only awarded Gold at this year's Chelsea Flower Show, it was also judged best garden in the All About Plants category!
Congratulations to designers Joe & Laura Carey, and to everyone else involved with the entry.
The garden featured on today's coverage of the Chelsea Flower Show on the BBC, with a visit from presenter Monty Don.
View it here, starting approximately 35 minutes in and lasting about 10 minutes: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m001m7vc/rhs-chelsea-flower-show-2023-episode-4
Our own Susie Davis also appeared on this evening's ITV Anglia News talking about Katie's Garden's role in growing many of the plants for the garden.
If you are going to the show make sure you seek out the garden in the Great Pavilion.
Just one week until the plants for the Talitha Arts Garden leave us, and more and more are starting to come into bloom.

Designers Joe & Laura Carey and some of the Chelsea team came for a visit to the nursery to check up on the plants' progress.
The good news is that most plants are looking on course for peaking at just the right time! It was decided a handful should get moved into the warmth of Allyhouse to help speed them along.
There was also time for a little playing around with plant combinations!
A television crew from BBC Gardeners' World spent the day at Katie’s Garden Plant Centre filming the plants we are growing for this year’s Chelsea Flower Show.
The results air on BBC Two at 9pm on Friday 5th May, or catch-up with Episode 8 on the iPlayer www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/b006mw1h/gardeners-world
The collection of unusual perennials, grasses and ferns will soon be heading off to London to become part of the Talitha Arts Garden. The garden has been designed by first-time entrants Joe and Laura Carey of Carey Garden Design Studio in Norfolk and the piece will be focusing on their experience of taking part in ‘the world’s greatest flower show’.
Designer Laura came for a visit today to see how the plants for the Talitha Arts Garden are doing and to decide with us which should come out, which should get some shade and which should have a trim to delay their flowering time.
As we get closer to show time we will fine-tune our care of the plants more and more!
