RHS Chatsworth Flower Show is a brand new 'cutting edge' flower and garden show for 2017. Set in the 404 hectare (1000 acre) grounds of the imposing Chatsworth House in the rolling hills of Derbyshire's Peak District, the theme of the first show will be 'Design Revolutionaries'. This will celebrate those creative and innovative designers who have changed and shaped the way we think about gardens and garden design, such as Joseph Paxton and 'Capability' Brown, as well as showcase those who are leading the way in innovative garden design today.

Chatsworth Flower Show highlights

With a theme of ‘Design Revolutionaries’, the new Chatsworth Flower Show will celebrate the many landscape designers who broke the mould and developed new ideas about gardens and garden design. But it’s not all about the past, as the show will also be a place for new and innovative designers to bring their ideas to the gardening public.

A new garden show category, called ‘FreeForm’ will encourage designers to stretch their imagination and create exciting conceptual gardens without conventional design constraints.

There is also a new competition for students and new and emerging designers called ‘Gardening in a Changing World’ which will highlight the new RHS ‘Science Strategy’. Winning designs will be developed as 3D models for display.

The Great Conservatory will recreate Paxton’s Great Conservatory which was in the grounds of Chatsworth from 1840 to its demolition in 1920. Nursery displays inside will feature everything from jungle to Mediterranean, and trees to bonsai.

Unlike most RHS shows, the Chatsworth Flower Show will be spread out around the beautiful Chatsworth grounds, taking advantage of the shape of the landscape and its wonderful views.

"Our aim is to create a new show that champions the horticultural innovation of today and the future, and encourages exhibitors to be progressive and think outside the box"
