Sussex-based Gravetye Manor sponsored garden claims two awards at Chelsea

This Morning the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Chelsea Flower Show announced its category winners and The Resilience Garden design sponsored by Gravetye Manor has won in two categories, one of only two gardens to do so.

In awarding the Gold and Best Construction Awards (Show Garden) to the Resilience Garden, The RHS website describes the garden: “Commissioned to celebrate the Forestry Commission’s centenary, the garden looks ahead to the challenges facing forests of the future. It explores how our woodlands can be made resilient to a changing climate and the increasing threats of pests and diseases.”
