RHS Chatsworth – one week to go!

There’s just one week to go until RHS Chatsworth begins! Brand new for 2017, it is an exciting addition to the RHS calendar – “the theme of the show is ‘Design Revolutionaries’, celebrating creative people who, through their foresight and innovation, have changed the way we think about gardens and garden design”. 

We are excited to be a part of the first ever RHS event at Chatsworth, and we are proudly supporting Tanya Batkin of Vergette Gardens with her design “the moveable feast” –

“This garden will provide all the knowledge that ‘generation renters’ will need to produce edibles for seasonal recipes, a beautiful outside area to simply enjoy and all safe in the knowledge that even if they move property, they will be able to simply take their garden with them!” – Vergette Gardens

The design features colourful planters on wheels, enabling the homeowner to move the planters around or even move them to their new garden if they move home.

 

The garden includes our Limestone Classic in Steel, which is already in place at the site. Tanya is working with the help of Big Fish Landscapes, who are busy working on building the garden ready for the show’s opening day.
