BBC Radio 2 and the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) have announced the ‘BBC Radio 2 Feel Good Gardens’ at the 2017 world famous RHS Chelsea Flower Show, sponsored by M&G Investments.
The five gardens will show how plants can enrich and indulge one of the five senses – touch, taste, smell, sight and sound.
The gardens will also celebrate BBC Radio 2’s fiftieth anniversary and are named after different BBC Radio 2 Presenters. On Monday 22 May, Chris Evans will do an outside broadcast from the RHS Chelsea Flower Show from 6.30am-09.30am.
The five BBC Radio 2 Feel Good Gardens are:
The Jo Whiley Scent Garden is designed by Tamara Bridge, 2015 RHS Young Designer of the Year, and Kate Savill. Tamara and Kate have asked fragrance designer Jo Malone to help create the garden, which will include aromas that transport you to a time or place such as woodland walks, rain on warm paving, fresh earth and new leaf growth, or freshly cut flowers from the garden. Both Jo Malone and Jo Whiley will visit the show in the build to help with planting.
