Our Chelsea Flower Show garden

Our show garden is calm, confident and inspires inquisitiveness. It cleverly draws from our Georgian origins and marries them with more contemporary design cues to reflect the forward-thinking organisation that we are today. This combination echoes the RNLI’s sense of permanence, while offering a space to reflect on the breadth of our lifesaving work.

Take a look at our beautiful plant list, and keep an eye on our progress page for exciting updates on the garden. You can also follow our journey to Chelsea on your social media using #RNLIatChelsea.

Meet our designer

Multi-award-winning garden designer and plantsman, Chris Beardshaw, has returned to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in May 2022. Thanks to the new Project Giving Back initiative, he has created our Show Garden.

Chris, who has been a lifelong supporter of the RNLI, has designed our garden as a celebration of our 200-year lifesaving history and cutting-edge modernity.

Watch our film to hear Chris explain more about the garden.

‘The RNLI is very dear to me and this is a fantastic opportunity to provide a platform from which to highlight the importance and depth of its work.’
