The Great Chelsea Garden Challenge 2015

The Great Chelsea Garden Challenge is a new competition series for BBC Two that will give one amateur designer the chance to win the biggest prize in gardening.

The?RHS?Chelsea Flower Show is the highlight of the British gardening calendar and the most famous gardening show in the world.

Now for the first time,?in a partnership between the Royal Horticultural Society and the BBC,?The Great Chelsea Garden Challenge?will see six amateur garden designers compete to win the biggest prize in gardening – to design and build a garden?feature?on Main Avenue at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2015.

Mentored by Joe Swift (Gardener?s World), the fledging designers have just four days and a limited budget to build show gardens in different styles – including cottage gardens, formal gardens and conceptual gardens – that will impress RHS Judge James Alexander Sinclair and a Gold medal winning garden designer Ann-Marie Powell.

They will be judged on how well they have met the brief, their horticultural knowledge, design skill and the sense of theatre that the garden brings.

The competition is filmed at gardens across the country including?RHS Garden Harlow Carr, Sudeley Castle, Painswick Gardens and?RHS Garden?Wisley.

The Great Chelsea Garden Challenge?is presented by Joe Swift and will broadcast on BBC Two in May.

Viewers will be able to follow the progress of the winner as part of the BBC?s RHS Chelsea Flower Show coverage.
