Project Giving Back extends its RHS Chelsea support to 2026

Project Giving Back (PGB) has extended its support of gardens for good causes at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show to 2025 and 2026.

Established in 2021, PGB pledged to fund 42 gardens at RHS Chelsea in 2022, 2023 and 2024, with an original investment of around £12m. The charity supported 15 gardens at this year’s event, including several award winners.

The success of the scheme is attributed as the reason for extending support for an additional two years. Speaking at the opening of the 2023 Gardens for Good Causes Exhibition, PGB’s CEO Hattie Ghaui, says: “We know from having to turn down some incredibly strong funding applications over the past couple of years that there are so many wonderful stories waiting to be told.”

The focus in the final two years “will be on funding gardens intended to be repurposed in UK locations not yet covered to date,” says PGB chair of trustees and RHS vice-president, Rosie Atkins, with a focus on charities and designers who will be delivering garden plans for Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, East Anglia and the North East of England.

Expressions of interest for 2025 funding will be open from 22 September to 3 November this year.
