From 5-9 June RHS Chatsworth Flower Show partnered by Wedgwood will return to the Chatsworth Estate. Lots of new content including a mass planting of thousands of Dahlia (Dalina Maxi) ‘Salinas’, an impressive Power of Trees feature and a spectacular floral immersion experience.
The theme of this year’s show celebrates the five senses of horticulture. With the taste and smell of edible herbs, plants and flowers, the touch of a variety of natural textures, the sight of high summer colours and the sound of bees, grasses and tree listening.
A passionate group of florists will be coming together to create an explosion of colour, scent and unique floral design. Housed within a covered scent filled walkway, the display will feature hundreds of varieties of flowers. Creating a rainbow of colourful blooms which will climb walls, cascade from the ceiling and surround visitors.
A mass planting of thousands of Dahlias will create a striking vision of lilac and white. Designed to echo the iconic parterres of Chatsworth House. Visitors will be able to walk amongst the blooms to enjoy the beauty of this vibrant summer flower.
The new Power of Trees feature will showcase some of the great ways trees enhance our lives. There’ll be a tree nursery, story telling, woodland crafts, carving, arborist talks and even tree listening in this exciting new zone.
There will also be a Virtual Reality experience created by 3D expert and VR designer, Simon Mabey. It will engage visitors further in the tree display as they experience the wonder of wildlife from the trunk to the treetop.
Other show highlights include a show garden inspired by one of the RHS founders, John Wedgwood in ‘The Wedgwood Garden’ by horticulturalist and our very own nurture editor Jamie Butterworth.
Also special feature ‘The Brewin Dolphin Artists’ Garden’ designed by multi award winning designer Paul Hervey-Brookes.
An RHS Wildlife Garden will show how the UK’s 24 million gardens can be transformed into a network of nature reserves. Encouraging hedgehogs, house sparrows and starlings back through native and non-native planting.
Finding peace through gardening will also be brought to the fore through five new Mindfulness Gardens. They will champion wellbeing and mental health in their design.
