    About the Welcome to Yorkshire show garden

    The stunning Yorkshire Dales was the inspiration for Welcome to Yorkshire’s 2018 RHS Chelsea Flower Show show garden. The garden celebrated Yorkshire’s plentiful natural materials, traditional crafts and skilled artisan food production.

    The sights, smells and tastes of this world-renowned national park were on display in the capital. The area is famous for its Wensleydale cheese, quintessential buttercup meadows and iconic dry stone walls – all of which were authentically recreated at RHS Chelsea 2018 to showcase Yorkshire’s beauty to the world.

    The garden featured genuine Yorkshire stone on loan from the Bolton Estate, stunning woodland, lush pastures, varied plants and flowers, a cultivated cottage garden, and a tumbling beck with dramatic fast flowing water. Pride of place in the garden was a stone bothy which was converted into a craftsman’s creamery where genuine artisan cheese production will take place.

    Marking 30 years at the greatest flower show on earth was a significant moment for Mark and what better way to celebrate than with a return to designing a garden for the place that shaped him as a person. Mark wanted to recreate the magnificence of Yorkshire's landscape, that truly deserved to be seen and appreciated by the wider world.

    A second guest speaker will be announced soon.
