The John Joseph Mechi Garden is being sponsored by Wilkin & Sons, working with the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI).
A passionate advocate of new farming methods, John Joseph Mechi is a link between RABI, which he founded, and his home at Tiptree Hall, which is now part of Wilkin & Sons' estate.
"We are delighted to be helping RABI and Writtle with the John Joseph Mechi Garden," said Wilkin & Sons joint managing director Ian Thurgood. "The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is a prestigious event and we're sure that visitors will share our enthusiasm for this very special garden, dedicated to a champion of rural communities."
RABI chairman Andrew Densham said: "The dedication of a Chelsea show garden to our founder, whose family motto was 'The fruit of the land sustains life', will be a high point in our 150 anniversary year.
"Thanks to the generous support of Wilkin & Sons and the expertise of Writtle College, I am sure that it will be a fitting tribute to John Joseph Mechi."
