Kate Gould is building her 10th Garden at Chelsea Flower Show

Kate Gould's 2019 Chelsea Flower Show Garden In The Making
Absolutely delighted top Garden Designer Kate has shared some of her pictures of the garden she is constructing now at Chelsea. Doesn't it just look manic and stressful. As I follow Kates progress I am begining to appreciate what incredibly hard work it is to construct a perfect show garden.

Kate was here only a few weeks ago and gave a brilliant workshop and is hoping to come back next year.

This year Kate is building her 10th Garden at Chelsea Flower. This one is on the  on the main stretch it is one of the big show gardens.
She has kindly send me tickets so I am very excited Peter and I will get to see it finished.

You may have seen the fantastic interview Kate gave on the 
BBC Two - RHS Chelsea Flower Show, 2019, The Road to Chelsea with Adam Frost and Sandy Toksvig. It's on Iplayer and it's a really good behind the scenes programme. Some of the previous plant winners we currently have in stock including last years Hydrangea 'Runaway Bride'

Kate has shared some details of the garden 

About the garden: A lush green split level garden provides a peaceful, interactive and uplifting space
where life-limited children with complex needs, their families, friends and carers can come together
for play, relaxation or peaceful reflection. Set over two levels, with a lift and sloped walkways, the
‘Greenfingers Charity Garden’ is an accessible space for people of all ages and abilities.
With its interesting planting and magical water-feature, the innovative garden design aims to
highlight and promote the therapeutic benefits of the outside spaces created over the past 20
years by Greenfingers Charity, the charity dedicated to creating inspiring gardens for life-limited
children and their families who spend time in hospices across the UK.

Key features: A large water feature can be viewed from both levels of the scheme and
from multiple seating areas. There are spaces to relax in sunshine and also under canopies. On the
lower level, ramps ensure disabled access and the second level of the garden is accessed via a lift
system. Hit and miss brickwork walls create privacy, shade and interesting shadows without
blocking views.
Kate says: “I am honoured and delighted to have been chosen by the Greenfingers Charity to
design and build this garden. Myself and the team are excited to be bringing their dreams of a
garden at Chelsea to life, we hope we can do it justice. The Charity does great work so helping
them to raise awareness while simultaneously promoting the many benefits of outdoor spaces is
wonderfully in line with our company ethos. Usable green spaces in every sort of environment
are key to uplifting and enriching the lives of the people who use them.”
