This Sun Flower Square garden, led by Peter Seabrook, was designed to showcase British horticulture and the 'Love the Plot You've Got' campaign at the 2016 RHS Chelsea Flower Show. It was very well received by the public throughout the week and was awarded a Silver-Gilt Medal by the the RHS.
Over 100 growers and garden centres came together to create four small areas:
The Room Outside featured a dining table with planted place settings and a garden fork and trowel as cutlery.
The Golden Jubilee Hanging Basket Garden featured baskets and patio pots containing many new varieties.
The Seed Garden was a living catalogue of flowers, vegetables and fruits. It brought all the major UK seed suppliers together for the first time at Chelsea.
The Rising Stars Grow Your Own Garden contained contributions by schools and colleges as well as a living wall commemorating HM the Queen's 90th birthday.
