The Homebase garden has won gold at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show - 'Sowing the seeds of Change'
Designed with a small family in mind, our Homebase garden offers a space where a family can delight in an every day connection with nature and the natural sources of their food. As a place to relax, entertain and nurture wildlife, our garden is the ultimate green retreat.
RHS Chelsea Flower Show - 'sowing the seeds of Change'
Our garden in association with Alzheimer's Society aims to educate the younger generation about the natural world, and to show how a sustainable place - like the wildlife corridor included in our garden - can also be a place where people can come together to create memories. Judges at the centenary Chelsea Flower Show have awarded The Homebase Garden – ‘Sowing the seeds of Change’, in association with Alzheimer’s Society, a prestigious Gold medal. Designed by Adam Frost, it is a modern family garden, providing an environment where families can enjoy not only a connection with nature and food for both themselves and wildlife, but also an outdoor space where they can spend time with family and friends. Our Garden Designer Adam Frost: Accepting the medal, Adam Frost said: “I’m delighted to receive a Gold medal at the centenary of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. I have really enjoyed bringing this garden to life, and would like to thank Homebase for its support during the design and build of the garden, as we are both committed to getting people more engaged with the great outdoors.” With a great love and appreciation for the outdoors, Adam Frost believes garden design is about understanding people and developing a passion for nature. His experience boasts working with Geoff Hamilton, a key figure for BBC's Gardeners World programme, and owning a business which is recognised as a leading garden design company in the UK. The garden design is a stunning vision with beautifully hand-crafted oak beehive, trees and shrubs to help break up different areas of the garden, Arbour area with seating for bringing family and friends together shallow dipping waterways and cooking area with bespoke steel and stone 'cooking box'. Here a few pictures from the garden and a few special visitors that popped along for a cup of tea: You can create a little piece of Chelsea yourself with our exclusive collection of over 140 products.
