Two garden design competitions — one for amateur designers and another for professionals — are being held by this year’s Chelsea show sponsor, Marshalls.
The hard-landscaping supplier officially opened the competitions today (1 February). They will run until 23 April.
Five finalists from each category will then be chosen by a panel of judges made up of representatives from Marshalls and the RHS to attend an awards ceremony held at the flower show.
A winner from each competition will be selected at the show and offered a chance to design and build a small garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2008 — subject to the judges’ approval.
The 10 short-listed designers will also have their designs displayed at this year’s event.
For more information on entering the competitions call Marshalls on 0870 120 7474.
L Marshalls has also revealed plans to hold a garden design forum at this year’s Chelsea flower show. The theme of the forum, to be held in the Great Pavilion auditorium, will be good garden design.
A number of guest speakers and experts will give short talks on the topic. Names of the speakers are expected to be announced in the next couple of weeks.
