Blenheim Palace Show Gardens

For 2019, the Show Gardens will follow the theme of ‘Regeneration’, urban, country or futuristic; designers are asked to let their imagination go wild. Each completed garden should fit within a 5m x 5m space, contain no less than 60% of planting, these gardens aim to show that even the everyday and the low cost can be used to create inspirational interventions that can make significant and lasting changes to gardens, the outdoors and natural areas, it should include some hard landscaping and show a creative use of the space in line with the show garden theme.

More details of this year’s Show Gardens can be found below.
