Putting Down Roots heads to Chelsea

For the past 22 years, Putting Down Roots has helped hundreds of people to build their confidence through gardening.

At regular sessions in Bristol, Leicester and London, clients can learn the practical skills needed to grow a wide selection of plants, including flowers, fruit and vegetables.

This May, the team had the chance to put those skills to use for an exciting new project – the world famous RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Funded by Project Giving Back, and designed by long term partner, Cityscapes, creating the St Mungo’s Putting Down Roots Garden was a real team effort.

It took months of preparation to prepare, with clients busy growing on and looking after over 2,000 plants, and helping move them to the show.

The end result was outstanding, with the garden attracting thousands of visitors throughout the week. It even scooped one of ten Silver medals from the Royal Horticultural Society.

We couldn’t be prouder of everything our Putting Down Roots team have achieved.
