The Platinum Jubilee Garden is a new permanent feature garden at the Showground created to celebrate the historic reign of Her Majesty The Queen.

The garden will sit on the site of the current Wellbeing Garden and will be filled with Queen Elizabeth II's favourite plants and shrubs, as well as plants named after her.

RHS Malvern is working closely with the Three Counties' Estates Team and supporting the further development of two apprentices, Kierran Brookes and Theo Clifford, who are students at Pershore College to do the planting and build the garden. 

Three Counties are running a competition to design and make the metal gates which will mark the entrance to the garden.

Welcome to the Jungle
Peter Dowle, Leaf Creative

Peter Dowle (Leaf Creative) is returning to the Festival Green with the first ever Houseplant feature garden, and it's supersized!

Encased in two giant clear domes, Peter will bring the wonderful world of houseplants to visitors by demonstrating different habitats and providing inspirational ideas for showgoers to take home.

This immersive, walk-through experience will transport visitors to a place far away as they experience a taste of the exotic in an inspiring space.

The Vitamin G Garden
Alan Williams & Graduate Gardeners

The Vitamin G Garden designed by Alan Williams from Landform Consultants in conjunction with BBC Radio 2 presenter Jo Whiley, and built by Graduate Gardeners, will be the first Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) feature garden to appear at Malvern. It will demonstrate the benefits to be enjoyed from a dose of Vitamin G – gardening – and is based on research conducted by the RHS’ Director of Science, Professor Alastair Griffiths and Lauriane Chalman-Pui .

The garden seeks to demonstrate how incorporating certain elements of gardening into your life benefits mental, physical and social wellbeing.

The garden will be positioned to borrow from the landscape and feature island beds that visitors can view from all sides and will contain a building clad in plants, trees, a deck, plunge pool, seating area and planting beds.
