Our picks for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2019

The 2019 Chelsea Flower show is in full bloom this week, running from the 21st to the 25th of May. Last year’s show offered an insight into gardening and wellbeing.

To promote this connection, a featured exhibit from 2018, the RHS Feel Good Garden, was later relocated to the Highgate Mental Health Centre.

This year, the two gardens that caught our attention share the theme of being future-oriented.

The first, Bespoke Outdoor Space’s, Gardening Will Save The World is a take on the future of urban farming. The silver-medal winning garden combines hydroponics and edible salad crops with a “botanic oasis” of a raised garden. A smart pairing of a “woodland feel” in an urban space with the technology for a potentially prolific growing area.

We are advocates of locally grown produce including vegetable patches and fruit trees. Most urban gardeners may not have room for such a hi-tech installation. However, it is possible to retrofit such hydroponics into a garden shed.

The second is Crocus’ Gold medal winning Resilience Garden. An exhibit that shines a light on the threats posed by the climate crisis on British woodlands.

In celebration of the Forestry Commission’s centenary, the aim of the garden is to inspire an appreciation of forests. and the challenges facing them, like climate change .

The Resilience Garden features an arid area, woodland edge and streamside. It features British native and exotic species that can thrive under the projected effects of climate change. Such plants include a Zelkova tree, a Japanese native and commonly known for its use in Bonsai. The Zelkova is highly adaptable, tolerant to heat, a lack of water, nutrient-poor soils and various pH.

The benefits of gardening and immersion into nature are numerous, from mental health and wellbeing to remaining at a healthy weight.

The safeguarding of plant and wildlife is more important now than at any point in our history. It is heartening to see that as the world changes and demands evolve, there are new strategies and innovations we can adopt.
