The National Garden Scheme is thrilled to announce that we will have a show garden at the 2024 RHS Chelsea Flower Show next May. Designed by eight times RHS gold medal winner, Tom Stuart-Smith, and sponsored by Project Giving Back, the garden will exemplify the joy and associated health and wellbeing benefits of garden visiting that have been at the heart of the National Garden Scheme since 1927.
Tom Stuart-Smith is a landscape architect whose work combines naturalism with modernity and built forms with romantic planting. He has designed eight award winning gardens for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, all of which were presented with gold medals and three ‘Best in Show’.
Tom has opened his garden at The Barn, alongside his sister’s garden at Serge Hill for the National Garden Scheme since 1993.
Project Giving Back gives charitable organisations in the UK the chance to exhibit a fully funded show garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, to promote their cause while supporting the horticultural industry.
In 2024, the National Garden Scheme will be working with landscape architect Tom Stuart-Smith and Crocus to create a show garden that will live on after the show to form part of the new Maggie’s cancer centre in Cambridgeshire.
