Chelsea Flower Show 2020 with Royal Army Medical Corps
We are very excited to announce that we are returning to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2020 with a garden for the Royal Army Medical Corps. Designed by our Creative Director Matt Keightley and sponsored by The Royal Army Medical Corps Charity, we shall be delivering a stunning garden entitled ‘Beyond rank or status.’
This will be our fifth garden at Chelsea Flower Show in seven years, with previous gardens designed and built for Help for Heroes, Sentebale, BBC Radio 2 and the RHS.
The Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC) was formed in 1898, and has served the nation during two world wars as well as through recent conflicts where it has provided a level of care for the wounded unsurpassed in the history of medicine. The RAMC Garden tells of the Corp’s unique and compelling history; a homage to the courageous servicemen and women who have cared for the wounded, beyond rank or status.
Designed to be a serene and calming space for reflection and rehabilitation, a series of impressive Carpinus ‘boxheads’ flank the perimeter of a peaceful courtyard, framing vistas into and through the garden. Effortless hardscape transitions and level changes subtly guide the eye helping visitors to imagine meandering through the garden.
The gentle sound of moving water adds a calming ambiance, enhancing the effect of the texture-filled and elegant planting palette. Herbs and other medicinal plants feature strongly in this garden.
