Tyga Helme at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2024


Artist Tyga Helme has been invited to be the artist-in-residence in the garden of eight times RHS gold medal winner, Tom Stuart-Smith at this years Chelsea Flower Show. Tom is designing for the National Garden Scheme.

With a woodland edge theme, the garden’s drift of gentle underplanting, made up of principally drought tolerant woodland plants laid out through an open hazel coppice, is designed to give a sense of calm and a connection to nature. A selection of plants have been donated by National Garden Scheme garden owners and incorporated into the design.

Following Chelsea Flower Show, Tyga’s work will be on sale on our website with one work up for auction. All proceeds from the sale of Tyga’s work will also be donated to the Maggie’s Centre for people undergoing cancer treatment at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge.

Following the show, the garden will be relocated to the Maggie’s Centre at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
