Poppy, Jemima, Humpty, Little Ted and Big Ted would be proud!


The team from Birmingham City Council, including Cofton Nursery, have brought Gold home for the eighth year running from RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2019.

The award winning display recognising the need for action on climate change.

Sponsored by Veolia and working in partnership with the legendary, Baroness Floella Benjamin, the garden focused on four key themes:

  • Air quality
  • Water conservation
  • Reducing waste
  • Community involvement

Cllr Sharon Thompson, cabinet member for homes and neighbourhoods at Birmingham City Council said, “I am delighted that we have again achieved Chelsea Gold for Birmingham while simultaneously being able to highlight the importance of our local environment.

“However, none of this would have been possible without the support of Baroness Floella Benjamin and our brilliant sponsors, Veolia, who have paid for this year’s display. A big thank you to both who have helped us reach this great achievement.”

Donald Macphail, Veolia’s Midland Director, said: “Veolia are pleased and proud to support Birmingham City Council’s commitment to promote resource management, as part of the circular economy.”

Regardless how it’s viewed, be it through the square, round or arched window, it’s a display of creative beauty with a message of great poignance which needs to be seen.
