Genuine Wedge Of The Yorkshire Dales On Show At Chelsea
Artist's Impression of the 2018 Welcome to Yorkshire garden
The stunning Yorkshire Dales have been confirmed as the inspiration for Welcome to Yorkshire’s 2018 RHS Chelsea show-garden.

The sights, smells and tastes of this world renowned national park will be on display in the capital next May.

The area is famous for its Wensleydale cheese, quintessential buttercup meadows and iconic drystone walls – all of which will be authentically recreated in London to showcase Yorkshire’s beauty to the world.

The walls will be crafted from genuine Yorkshire stone on loan from the Bolton Estate which will be returned there after the show.

A first look at the artist’s impression, unveiled today, also reveals woodland, lush pastures, varied plants and flowers, a cultivated cottage garden, and a tumbling beck with dramatic fast flowing water.

Pride of place in the garden will go to a stone bothy which has been converted into a craftsman’s creamery where genuine artisan cheese production will take place.

Sir Gary Verity, Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire said:
“We’re delighted to be back at the prestigious Chelsea flower show for the ninth year running, bringing a garden inspired by the stunning Yorkshire Dales to the heart of London for the whole world to see.

“As well as showcasing the scenic beauty of Yorkshire’s many iconic gardens and breathtaking open spaces, this year’s garden will celebrate Yorkshire’s plentiful natural materials, traditional crafts and skilled artisan food production.

We hope it will inspire those who see it, to come and experience first-hand everything our amazing county has to offer.”

This evocative and aromatic garden is the vision of designer, and proud Yorkshireman, Mark Gregory, who marks his 30th consecutive year at the prestigious show next year.

Garden Designer Mark Gregory said:
“Marking 30 years at the greatest flower show on earth is a significant moment for me and what better way to celebrate than with a return to designing a garden for the place that shaped me as a person.

Most people who know me, know how proud I am of my roots, so creating the Welcome to Yorkshire Garden is an incredible honour. I want to re-create the magnificence of Yorkshire's landscape. It deserves to be seen and appreciated by the wider world.”
