2017 marks a significant year for Royal Bank of Canada; not only is it the 10th year of the RBC Blue Water Project™, a wide-ranging, global commitment to help protect the world’s fresh water resources, but also the 150th anniversary of the Federation of Canada. It is these two celebrations that are at the core of the Royal Bank of Canada Garden at the 2017 RHS Chelsea Flower Show, which draws inspiration from Canada’s boreal forest – the largest intact forest and freshwater ecosystem on earth.
The garden designed for RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2017 seeks to create a space that is inspired by this landscape, rather than a recreation of it. A wilder garden folds around man-made elements, crafted from materials of the boreal. Planting combines species native to or evocative of the boreal.
We are delighted that the Garden forms part of the official celebrations of the 150th Anniversary of the Confederation of Canada.
This garden won a gold medal at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2017.
