RHS Chatsworth Show Garden to come to Renishaw Hall
Award winning designer Lee Bestall – whose business Bestall & Co is based in the Stables Courtyard at Renishaw – is the designer of the Experience Peak District & Derbyshire Garden at RHS Chatsworth; one of a series of new show gardens that will be visited by tens of thousands of visitors between 7 and 11 June.
The garden, which has been inspired by the gardens and landscape of Renishaw within which Lee works, will be transported to Renishaw Hall & Gardens after the show and be installed in the grounds there, offering an exciting new area to Renishaw’s own award-winning gardens.
The show garden space will be accessible to visitors from late June, with tours of the space led by Lee in September, dates TBC.
Lee says: “The show garden was inspired by the great houses and gardens of Derbyshire, one of which is Renishaw Hall. I was particularly inspired by the various features at Renishaw such as the haha, parkland view and tightly mown lawns which run through the long grass areas, as well as the perfectly manicured Italianate borders which are neatly bordered with metal edging”.
As part of celebrating the new prestigious RHS garden show for the region, Renishaw is offering 25% off entry to the gardens during RHS week, upon proof of show visit. Call the visitor centre on 01246 432310 for more information.
