RHS Chelsea’s Eastern Avenue will once again be home to the Society of Garden Designers (SGD) this year, with a stand designed to demonstrate the wide variety of design approaches offered by the Society’s registered members and practices.
The stand will invite visitors to view an array of members' work on a built-in screen, wall poster displays and a portfolio within the exhibit. Registered members will also be available throughout the week offering informal design consultations to visitors.
In the show’s main arena, the Society's designers will also be back in force this year, taking up residence along Chelsea’s Main Avenue, amongst the popular Artisan Gardens and in the Space to Grow and Feature Garden categories. In total, 14 SGD members are staging garden exhibits at the event.
