Project Giving Back will support 12 gardens for good causes at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in May 2022. Today we can reveal seven of those gardens, with more to be announced later in January. All gardens supported by Project Giving Back will be unveiled to show visitors and viewers before being relocated to their permanent homes across the UK in summer 2022.

The iconic RHS Chelsea Flower Show will return in spring 2022 after two years of disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Back in its usual late May calendar slot, the show will be attended by some 168,000 people in 2022, while millions more will tune in to coverage on television, radio, online and on social media channels. The RHS has announced a bumper crop of gardens and other show content for 2022, including a total of 12 gardens funded by Project Giving Back. 


Hattie Ghaui, Director of Project Giving Back, says:


“We’re so excited to be revealing the first tranche of our 2022 cohort of gardens for good causes. PGB supports gardens inspired by a wide range of organisations and designed by an incredible mix of garden designers. We can’t wait to see the gardens come to life at the show and for the work of some incredible causes to be in the spotlight.” 


2022 show gardens supported by Project Giving Back:

A further PGB show garden will be announced later in the spring; and four smaller gardens in a new category, All About Plants, will be announced later in January 2022. All About Plants gardens are plant-led designs that champion specialist nurseries, with at least 75% of the space taken up by plants.


Rosie Atkins, editor, former curator of Chelsea Physic Garden and Chair of the PGB Advisory Panel, says: 


“We can’t thank the 2022 garden teams enough for the effort and time they have dedicated to this project. We are supporting a truly inspiring and interesting group of gardens at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in May that we hope will resonate with show visitors, raise the profile of the causes associated with each garden, and encourage a new wave of nature and garden enthusiasts.”
