Chelsea Flower Show with Award-Winning Garden Designer Ann-Marie Powell - Episode 33


With the highly anticipated, and slightly belated, Chelsea Flower Show 2021 just a week away, this week’s episode of ‘grow, cook, eat, arrange’ offers us a perfect chance to talk with one of the show’s most prolific and accomplished garden designers - the wonderful Ann-Marie Powell.

Missing just a single year of the show since 1997 (understandably for the birth of her now-12 year old), Ann-Marie shares the tales from her formative years and TV career that fuelled her unbridled botanical passion, her visionary approach to designing a captivating garden, and what we can expect from a Chelsea show which promises to bring some seasonal surprises.

In this episode, discover:

  • Ann-Marie’s inspiring experiences with gardening through her formative years
  • The authentic passion behind Ann-Marie’s exciting designs and delightful presence on social media
  • Which show stopping flowers will be stealing the spotlight at RHS Chelsea this year
  • How Ann-Marie and the team are creating their gorgeous exhibition with such a tight turnaround time
