UK - England (Derbyshire)
The first RHS Chatsworth Flower Show in 2017 was a great success with many cutting edge designer gardens. The 404 hectare (1000 acre) grounds of the imposing Chatsworth House in the rolling hills of Derbyshire's Peak District make a perfect setting for display gardens, the giant marquee and gardening product and plant stalls.

Chatsworth Flower Show highlights

The Chatsworth Flower Show will celebrate gardens and garden design, especially new and innovative designers by bringing their ideas to the gardening public.

The show garden 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"
