RHS CHELSEA FLOWER SHOW 2021

This year’s Show Garden is a celebration of the NHS and the relentless work to provide care and support during the COVID pandemic. Not just nurses and doctors, but physios, pharmacists, porters, technicians, and other unseen and unsung staff who keep the health service running. It recognises the collaboration between UK University researchers and NHS staff to find new treatments and vaccines for COVID.

The garden creates an immersive experience with the beautiful hard-wood canopy, rills and pools. The water starts its exploration through a series of rills and pools, representing the collective efforts of those working together in the NHS and universities. Warm earthy, apricot tones run through the planting, anchored by Acer griseum, Rosa ‘Phyllis Bide’ and Rosa glauca. The collaboration of planting, hard-landscaping and the gentle sound of water provides a safe space for reflection and contemplation, bringing optimism and hope of a brighter future.

The message of the garden is that even in the testing times of isolation and lockdown due to COVID, we are all – from NHS workers, to the general public, to those at risk and shielding – united by a common aim to support each other to get through it all.
