Chelsea 2013: Transformation Garden

Stoke-on-Trent City Council and partners are harnessing flower-power in promoting the city's growing international reputation as a hothouse for advanced materials technology.

The city has entered the Chelsea Flower Show with a stunning Transformation Garden – with the express intention of growing the city’s international reputation as a hothouse for inward investment and enterprise.
Every other show garden at Chelsea has been designed by big name designers, but Stoke-on-Trent is an expression of the city’s collaborative spirit.

It has been designed by the council’s multi award winning in-house landscape team. It will be a unique mix of rare precision engineered artefacts with beautiful plants and flowers, all symbolising some part of the city’s amazing story.


But it has attracted the support of renowned London based Bartholomew Landscaping who are bringing it all together down at Chelsea for free.
