The Pocket Garden Makeover

The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) and The One Show launch a garden makeover contest to win an expert transformation of a small outdoor space.

Small garden

To demonstrate the positive benefits of gardening, the RHS & The One Show launched the initiate to highlight how small changes people can make to their ‘pocket-sized’ outdoor space that will help them connect with plants, wildlife, grow vegetables, provide a calming sanctuary or a small place to relax with family and friends.

The Pocket Garden Makeover contest is open for entries until Monday 25 March 2024. All those interested can either enter themselves, or nominate someone who needs a revitalised small outdoor space. Entrants will be asked to demonstrate the potential impact on them or the person nominated and their creative vision for the space.

The winner will receive a small garden space or balcony makeover up to the value of £5,000 by an expert landscaping team, including a consultation and design from presenter and landscape garden designer Chris Hull. “No matter what the size, everyone deserves a garden space where they can relax, immerse themselves in nature, and support wildlife in their local area. I can’t wait to help the worthy winner and to inspire many more people to ‘green-up’ their lives”, said Hull.

Joanne Vaughan-Jones, Editor The One Show said: “We know how transformative having access to outdoor space can be for our viewers no matter how small, so we’re excited to be teaming up with Chris and The RHS to help make a pocket sized space a personal paradise and share some brilliant tips along the way”

Entries close at 5pm on Monday 25 March 2024, and the results will be announced on The One Show in May. For information and submission details see the RHS and The One Show Pocket Garden Makeover prize.
