Prince Harry's Garden at Chelsea Flower Show - Sentebale

Prince Harry's Garden at Chelsea Flower Show - Sentebale

Prince Harry has just arrived at the Chelsea Flower Show, and in some respects his garden reflects some emerging themes of the show.  Bold, rich colours and plenty of red... however not in the planting.

Prince Harry African Ladies

 

It's the bright African clothes worn by his singers which are the eye catching colours.  The planting however has more subdued tones.

Surrounded by a flurry of beautiful singing African ladies, Prince Harry sauntered down past the main show gardens to present his show garden  inspired by the Mamohato Children’s Centre, in Lesotho.

 



The garden is sponsored by the David Brownlow Charitable Foundation and designed by Matt Keightley of Rosebank Landscaping.

Sentebale want to use it to raise awareness of its work providing healthcare and education to Lesotho’s child victims of poverty and HIV/AIDs.
