Centenary Garden

Presenting a garden at the
RHS Chelsea Flower show in May 2020

We are working to enter a Centenary Garden into the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in May 2020. This will be a unique opportunity to promote Welwyn Garden City at this internationally renowned Show where it will attract world-wide media coverage. After RHS Chelsea, the Centenary Garden will be relocated to further enhance the attractiveness of the town centre as a place to ‘live, work and play’

 A garden design competition has been held, judged by a panel of experts. The winning design captures the essence of Welwyn Garden City as a place with:

  • Room to breathe
  • Open green space with trees and vistas
  • Nature and society co-existing in harmony
  • Community at its heart

The Centenary Garden will be inspiring and uplifting providing a social gathering space for residents, shoppers and visitors to enjoy for years to come.
