Often described as “the world’s greatest flower show”, this year’s Chelsea Flower Show will be graced with hundreds of plants from our Newbourne nursery!
Katie’s Garden is growing a host of unusual perennials especially for The Talitha Arts Garden, which is set to appear in the All About Plants category in the Great Pavilion. The garden has been designed by first time exhibitors Joe and Laura Carey of Norfolk-based Carey Garden Design Studio.
Looking for East Anglian nurseries to help them with their entry they were put in contact with us thanks to our own Anna Peachey who was involved with last year’s show.
We are particularly pleased to be involved with their design as it is heavily plant-focused and will be relocated to a permanent home after the show in May.
The All About Plants category was introduced in 2022 to champion the ability of plants to improve lives and livelihoods.
This year there will be six gardens, each celebrating the work of a charity and the power of plants to positively influence mental health, community and industry. In addition, at least 80 per cent of the area of every garden featured will be covered in planting, highlighting the vital role specialist growers play within UK horticulture.
Joe and Laura’s design is being backed by Project Giving Back, a scheme to help charities enter the prestigious flower show.
The charity they are working with, Talitha Arts, uses therapeutic arts to help people who have experienced abuse and trauma in their lives, as well as those living with dementia.
Following the show, the garden will be permanently relocated to the St Margaret’s House community centre in Bethnal Green, London.
