Chelsea Flower Show features garden by Duchess of Cambridge

London, May 19 (efe-epa).- Green-fingered exhibitors are gearing up for this year’s Chelsea Flower Show in London, which will feature a garden designed by the Duchess of Cambridge.

One of the gardens at this year's event has been designed by Prince William's wife, the Duchess of Cambridge.

“I believe that spending time outdoors when we are young can play a role in laying the foundations for children to become happy, healthy adults,” she said in a statement.

Kensington Palace shared a picture of the green space on Sunday described it as a space “filled with incredible edibles, plants for craft activities, forest scents and a diverse range of plants.”

Organisers the Royal Horticultural Society tweeted a photograph of the garden, with Kate sitting on a rope swing.

“We invite you to take a sneak peek at The Duchess of Cambridge’s #RHSChelsea ‘Back to Nature’ Garden,” they wrote.

“The garden includes a swing seat, hanging below the garden’s centrepiece, a high platform tree house.”

The “Back to Nature” garden was co-designed by Kate and inspired by childhood memories and families.

RHS said the “woodland garden is a place to retreat from the world, to play, learn and discover as well as create special family memories.”

There is also a waterfall and stream which “offer places to paddle, relax and build dams, while a hollow log presents a challenge of learning to balance as well as to climb,” RHS said.

Another colourful display features thousands of chrysanthemum flowers in the shape of a rainbow.

RHS Floral Marquee Manager Helen Boem tweeted: “Somewhere over the rainbow…

“There will be somewhere in the region of around 7,000 Chrysanthemum blooms on this National Chrysanthemum Society exhibit.”

The Chelsea Flower Show will run from May 21 to 25 and is set in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea in west London.

It has been held in Chelsea since 1912 and is the most famous flower and landscape garden show in the United Kingdom.

The show is attended by members of the British Royal Family and attracts visitors from all continents. EFE-EPA
