About the event
Borough Market, Franchi Seeds and the Eden Project are joining forces to create an abundant kitchen garden for the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower show, running from 3rd – 8th July.
The Kitchen Garden is a collaboration between Borough Market, Britain’s most renowned food market; Franchi Seeds of Italy, the oldest family seed company in the world and the iconic Eden Project based in Cornwall, home of the world famous rainforest and Mediterranean Biomes. The three partners aim to inspire and educate visitors to RHS Hampton Court; highlighting the importance of seasonality, diversity and provenance of the fruit and vegetables that we eat.
Designed to replicate a traditional market stall, but with all of the plants, herbs and flowers planted, the Borough Market Kitchen Garden will take visitors on a journey from seed to plate. The innovative display will showcase the range of fresh produce that can be grown from seed at home, whether on a small urban balcony, window box or a larger plot.
The garden is Borough Market’s first RHS display, and represents London’s oldest market’s commitment to raising awareness of food provenance, and connecting consumers to the process of growing produce.
The garden is being designed by a team of horticulturalists from Eden, lead by multi-award winning designers Emma Gunn and Paul Stone. Situated in the ‘Dig In’ Marquee, DG397, the small garden is set against the backdrop of red brickwork and filigree columns synonymous with Borough Market.
