RHS Chelsea Show Gardens

Flexing our design skills, creating beautiful gardens

Over two decades, Robert has won six gold medals and the People’s Choice Award for his gardens at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, for sponsors including Cadogan Estates, Cancer Research UK and Brewin Dolphin. We’ve loved creating Chelsea gardens which have allowed us to exercise our design skills and try out exciting new ideas which we can bring back to the studio to benefit our clients.

Our 2007 garden for Fortnum & Mason celebrated the famous store’s tercentenary and reflected its worldwide reputation as a purveyor of fine foods and living. The garden included drifts of colourful, bee-friendly planting and four specially-designed, ornate beehives which were subsequently placed on the roof of the Fortnum’s building in Piccadilly, with the honey produced sold in the store.

Our show garden for Cadogan Estates, a year later, represented a London Square of the future where climate change had transformed the traditional city garden of sunny lawns and flower-filled borders into a garden of shade, lush planting and cooling water canals.



We designed three show gardens for Cancer Research UK, each focusing on a different theme – Impact, Enlighten and Survival. Our gold-winning garden for Brewin Dolphin in 2013 was designed as a calm, reflective, private garden that was also inspiring. The simple, geometric layout of stone, timber and water created various spaces for relaxation and informal entertainment, with sculptural and textural planting drawn from a palette of British native species.

Our most recent show garden was the Florence Nightingale Garden for Modern Day Nursing, in September 2021, for The Burdett Trust for Nursing. The theme of the garden was ‘nurture through nature’, reflecting the life and character of the pioneering nurse and some of her ideas about the importance of green spaces, light and air in hospital settings. To our collective delight, the garden has been rebuilt in the grounds of St Thomas’ Hospital as a permanent restorative space.

“We are… delighted that this beautiful garden has found a permanent home with us, providing an oasis of calm for our patients, staff and visitors.” Avey Bhatia, Chief Nurse for Guy’s and St Thomas’

“This dignified garden would be as beautiful in 50 years as it is now”
