Perennial reveals action-packed 2019 at Garden Press Event

To help mark our 180th anniversary this year, we have been talking to journalists from across the horticulture sector today (Wednesday 27 February) about our action-packed year of awareness raising and fundraising at the annual Garden Press Event in London. Colm Joseph and Duncan Cargill, the designers of the Perennial Lifeline Garden at RHS Chelsea Flower Show this year were on hand to talk to people about their first-time Chelsea experience.

Colm said:

“We’re honoured to have been chosen to represent Perennial at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2019 and to work with Sir Roy Strong CH on the exhibit. We hope our design resonates with visitors to the show who will be able to walk through the garden, exploring the familiar, reimagined.”

Duncan said:

“The garden celebrates design heritage but reinterprets classical principles and elements with an eye on the future. Just as Perennial has adapted over the last 180 years to help countless people in the horticulture industry manage challenging times, we hope the garden takes the best from the past while embracing the future.”

We help anyone who makes or looks after gardens, parks, sports grounds, woodlands and other green spaces. If you work with plants, trees or grass, Perennial is your charity. Our friendly and experienced team can help you and your family through life-changing events with free and confidential personal support, for as long as you need it.

Our aim this year is simple: to reach more people than ever before with information about how Perennial helps and to further increase the number of people who use our services. You can help us spread the word in lots of different ways.
