Chelsea Flower Show sheds preview: The National Garden Scheme Garden

We're starting early with our annual previews of garden offices, sheds, and other garden buildings at the Chelsea Flower Show. Here to kick us off is The National Garden Scheme Garden designed by
Tom Stuart-Smith and sponsored by
 Project Giving Back and 
The National Garden Scheme

There's a woodlandy theme but most interestingly the RHS organisers say that the garden centres on a timber hut made from UK-grown and reclaimed timber, and designed as a carbon sink. Rainwater collected from the cleft oak hut will drain into the plant beds. The hut is designed as a place where visitors and garden volunteers can congregate for tea and cake, as they do under the excellent National Garden Scheme garden open days. A portion of the hut's timber comes from Hertfordshire where Tom Stuart-Smith and his family open their gardens for the National Garden Scheme.


Friday posts are sponsored by Warwick Buildings, manufacturers of outstanding quality timber buildings. Click here for more information.
