The first-ever RHS Chatsworth Flower Show will take place this summer in the spec­tac­u­lar grounds of Chatsworth House in Der­byshire’s Peak District. Run­ning from 7-11 June, the new show, com­plete with stun­ning show gar­dens and plant dis­plays, will cel­e­brate ‘De­sign Rev­o­lu­tion­ar­ies’ and the in­no­va­tion that has changed the way we think about gar­dens and gar­den de­sign. Com­pe­ti­tion Wealth man­ager Brewin Dol­phin is spon­sor­ing one of the show gar­dens and to cel­e­brate the event’s first year, is of­fer­ing two read­ers the chance to win a pair of tick­ets to visit the show on Wed­nes­day 7 June along with an exclusive pri­vate tour of the Brewin Dol­phin gar­den with award­win­ning de­signer Jo Thomp­son. The prize also in­cludes overnight ac­com­mo­da­tion on 7 June with din­ner and break­fast at the Ring­wood Hall Ho­tel & Spa in nearby Brim­ing­ton (ring­wood­hall­ho­tel.com). The Brewin Dol­phin gar­den at RHS Chatsworth Flower Show The Brewin Dol­phin gar­den, de­signed by award-winning de­signer Jo Thomp­son, will cre­ate a spec­tac­u­lar hor­ti­cul­tural in­stal­la­tion in the new FreeForm cat­e­gory.

Sit­ting on the banks of the River Der­went, the gar­den will re­flect the grandeur of its set­ting and pro­vide a spec­tac­u­lar con­tem­po­rary view of the his­toric vis­tas. A striking steel sculpture will sweep through the space in a series of wide curves, with the gar­den ar­eas dot­ted along the sculpture’s main frame in­ter­spersed by wild­flower mead­ows, con­nect­ing a glade of trees at one end and an or­na­men­tal gar­den at the other. A soft pas­tel plant­ing pal­ette of blues and pinks with high­lights of apri­cot will con­trast with the patina of the steel, while paving and sculp­tural seat­ing used through­out the gar­den will ref­er­ence the mill­stones found across the Peak District.

Jo Thomp­son has been named as one of the coun­try’s top ten de­sign­ers and is a lead­ing plantswoman.
