Yeo Valley Organic Garden extended opening in celebration of achievements at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show

11 Oct 2021


There were many firsts for the Yeo Valley Organic at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show. It was the first time the Somerset organic dairy brand featured at the world-famous flower show; featuring the first ever organic show garden, which was awarded a gold medal and was the successful winner of the BBC/RHS’s People’s Choice Award. To celebrate these achievements the six and a half acre Yeo Valley Organic Garden in Somerset is extending its season by opening during October on Friday and Saturdays.  

Judges and fans have shown their support towards the first organic show garden, and now local people can visit the garden that inspired the show garden, by exploring the diversity of life found on Yeo Valley’s Organic dairy farm in Somerset and learn more about organic gardening principles and see the iconic steam-bent egg wooden hide which featured at Chelsea in its new home in the valley. 

Sarah Mead, Yeo Valley Organic Head Gardener, supported designer Tom Massey to design the award-winning show garden said “The RHS Chelsea Flower Show was such a whirlwind; the build-up to the event was over 18 months of planning, to be awarded a gold medal from the judges and the RHS BBC’s People’s Choice Award was beyond our expectation. With the egg and plants now in Somerset, we want to inspire visitors on how making small organic changes to your gardening, can make a lasting impact.”   

Late summer perennials such as dahlias, heleniums and rudbeckia; a gauzy haze of ornamental grasses, trees and shrubs that featured in the garden will also be re-homed direct from the Chelsea show garden.  

Entry is £6, and tickets can be pre-booked by visiting their website. Season tickets holders do not have to book, but please check we are open on the slot you are wanting to come, as the garden may be closed.  

If you are unable to visit the garden before the end of October, the 2022 season will begin on Wednesday 27th April, opening every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday offering 3-time slots each day.
