"Working on this project has been amazing. Not only have I seen the flowers bloom I’ve seen myself bloom. To get a gold medal is incredible, and then to win Best Garden in Section is even better. All of our hard work has paid off."
Help for Heroes partnered with Sparsholt College to create ‘The Force for Good garden' at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2018.
6 Veterans and 9 Students were involved in the project, working together from the initial design all the way through to building the garden at the show.
The garden tells the story of the journey of an individual affected by their military service, and how horticulture supports them and their families.
The team were thrilled to win a Gold medal and Best Discovery Exhibit.
After RHS Chelsea 2018 the garden’s legacy will continue this positive impact – with elements being re-homed and donated to community groups, to help more people, learn, grow and heal through gardening.
