Perennial Lifeline Garden at Chelsea 2019

The Perennial Lifeline Garden at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2019 is one of a series of show gardens and events designed to mark Perennial’s 180th anniversary this year.

The charity is also supporting show gardens at RHS Flower Show Cardiff and Harrogate Spring Flower Show and will be exhibiting at a full range of horticulture, forestry and arboriculture trade events throughout the year.

The garden will feature a classical rose garden reimagined as a more sustainable and low maintenance ‘rose meadow’. Roses intermingle with ornamental grasses, perennials and annuals to create a striking and texturally rich display with long seasonal interest. Providing formality and structure, three forms of hedge (beech, yew and hornbeam) are asymmetrically arranged and clipped to varying heights, while classical sculpture is replaced by the organic forms of multi-stem trees, helping to frame views through the space.

Anita Bates, Director of Marketing and Fundraising at Perennial says: “Our aim in 2019 is simple – to reach more people than ever before with the message that Perennial is here to help everyone who works in horticulture. From gardeners to greenkeepers, foresters to landscape designers, if you work with plants, trees or turf, we’re your lifeline when times get tough. We’re working with colleagues from across the industry to realise [this] ambitious design and look forward to speaking to visitors about how Perennial is both rooted in the history of the UK horticulture industry and evolving to ensure its people flourish well into the future.”
