RHS Chelsea Flower Show

2021 marks our first ever show garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and we couldn’t be more excited! Creating an organic garden for Chelsea is a ‘dream come true’ for Yeo Valley’s own Sarah Mead.

The Yeo Valley Organic Garden will not only be bringing a slice of our valley to the show but we’re also hoping that it will encourage show visitors to dig into organic gardening and to put nature first.

Our Organic Show Garden

The design for our show garden at Chelsea takes a lot of inspiration from our Organic Garden here in the Valley.

Award winning garden designer Tom Massey, has designed our show garden, supported by Sarah Mead, our Head Gardener.

The garden features a steam bent oak ‘egg’ hide designed and handcrafted in Cornwall by Tom Raffield. The shape represents the very thing that has inspired the garden – Nature! And the circular systems we see within it.

Give these short videos a watch to find out a little more about our journey from the Valley to The RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Organic Gardening

Organic Gardening

Our Yeo Valley garden is one of the few certified organic gardens in the UK so we knew we wanted our very first show garden to be following the same principles.

In this video Head gardener Sarah Mead and designer Tom Massey discuss the connections between our organic garden in the valley and our Chelsea garden.

Our 2020 plants

Our 2020 plants

Sarah Mead and Tom Massey talk about what happened to the plants grown for the 2020 show, (some were redistributed to hospital gardens) and how we’re pulling some of them into our 2021 show garden.

We knew we couldn’t throw them all into the compost and start again so had to be smart!

RHS Chelsea Flower Show

We can’t wait to bring our garden to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in September. We’ll be showcasing organic gardening and championing the soil. We’ll even be using many of last year’s plants – we love to reuse and hate waste.

Last year’s show was virtual! Watch Tom demonstrate how to create an organic wildlife haven, hear about the Yeo Valley Organic Garden here in Somerset and find out about our original Chelsea plans for 2020 from Sarah.

If you can’t make it to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show this year, why not plan a trip to see our Organic Garden in Blagdon, Somerset?

Open Wednesdays and Fridays during the open season, it’s well worth a visit for garden enthusiasts and amateurs alike!
