For the fifth year in a row, Royal Bank of Canada returns to RHS Chelsea Flower Show, this time with a contemporary garden from Matthew Wilson which explores living sustainably through good design and understanding the importance of conserving fresh water. The garden is divided into three main parts; a zero irrigation ‘dry garden’, central water harvesting/storage zone, and edible garden, with a raised seating and dining platform.

Matthew’s work on creating the Dry Garden at RHS Garden Hyde Hall and the RBC Blue Water Project has been the inspiration for his garden. Based around a series of curved beds and features, the garden represents the ebb and flow of water, creating a sheltered sunlit space. Drought-tolerant and sun-loving trees, shrubs and flowers form the planting for the garden which also has a small pond.
