The first looks at RHS Chelsea 2023
Showcasing the pinnacle of horticultural excellence and the latest in sustainable landscape solutions
This year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show will soon be opening its door to the public, showcasing the pinnacle of horticultural excellence.
The show will feature the latest in sustainable landscape solutions, from peat-free plantation to repurposed agricultural waste, with every garden on display designed to be relocated after the show closes.
Here are the first looks at some of what 2023 Chelsea has to offer.

A place of sanctuary and hope, designed to be an immersive restorative haven for spinal injury patients, enabling them to benefit from the healing properties of engaging with nature.
The wheelchair-accessible garden will be relocated to the Princess Royal Spinal Injuries Centre in Sheffield.
‘Feel Good’ by Hartley Botanic
The glasshouse and greenhouse manufacturer trade stand displays four of company’s handmade greenhouses, demonstrating just some of the ways these beautiful garden structures can be uniquely personalised.
The uplifting stand has been inspired by Chelsea’s 2023 wellbeing theme and the desire to give visitors a much-needed psychological boost.
The Savills Garden

This unique verandah will form the shelter for the first ever working kitchen to feature at Chelsea, with Michelin-green starred chef Sam Buckley set to serve up a changing menu, created with foods foraged from the garden.
The ‘Plot to Plate’ garden will showcase ‘edimental’ planting, inspired by rising food waste concerns.
Stonebalancing trade stand
Stonbalancing artist Adrian Gray has designed two monolithic sculptures at this years show, using 290-million-year-old Cornish granite boulders balanced as if by a thread.
The stand features a mix of flowering perennials and grasses native to the UK, with a naturalistic and wild theme to reflect the organic nature of Gray’s work.
The show is open to the public from 23-27 May, with a great number of gardens, trade stands and activities to engage with and find inspiration from.
