The city of Leeds will be showcased on the international stage when it takes part in the most prestigious gardening event in the world – the Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show.
Leeds City Council has enjoyed great success in Chelsea at recent years, with all six previous gardens dating back to the first in 1997 earning bronze or silver awards.
From 19th-23rd May, Leeds will once again enter a show garden for the event, which attracts over 150,000 visitors from around the globe.
Climate change is all around us, we see examples every day. The effects of Hurricane Katrina on New Orleans showed the full dramatic force of nature, while closer to home the UK, Yorkshire and Leeds were badly hit by the severe floods of the summer of 2007.
What is becoming clear is that we are part of the problem. By paving over our gardens and tarmaccing our drives we are making it harder for rainwater to drain away naturally, which leads to flash flooding.
The HESCO Garden, designed and created by Leeds City Council, will show what a difference people can make in their own gardens, large or small, to stop this problem getting worse.
