Nurturing talent and taking a long-term view
2016 will mark the seventh year of M&G’s exclusive sponsorship of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. M&G’s partnership with the RHS began in 2010 and will continue until 2017.
Our sponsorship covers both the Show and the Charity Gala Preview Evening, one of the most prestigious events in the corporate calendar and the start of the social season.
Sue Biggs, RHS director general, says:
"M&G’s support provides a vital contribution to our work to involve, educate and inspire millions of gardeners across the country and the world, not only through the fantastic show gardens they bring to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, but through their support of the Charity Gala, which directly benefits the RHS Campaign for School Gardening."
For the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016, we have commissioned award-winning Cleve West as our garden designer for a second time. The inspiration for ‘The M&G Garden 2016′ is the moment that Cleve fell in love with the timeless rugged landscape of south west England. Cleve has tapped into his memories of teenage beguilement with the rocks and woods of Exmoor. The design is a contemporary tribute to the landscape that made such an early impression on Cleve.
