Kate Middleton's garden design for the Chelsea Flower Show revealed


The Duchess of Cambridge helped design a "return to the garden of nature" for the Chelsea Flower Show.

Kate designed the wild forest garden alongside landscape architects Andree Davies and Adam White, and the Royal Horticultural Society.

Kensington Palace said in a statement today that the garden will help "inspire families to go out and explore nature together."

"The garden hopes to unleash memories of the past time in nature and encourage others to go out and create new outdoor experiences."

The centerpiece of the garden will be a high-shelf tree house, lined with oak deer horn that draws on a bird's nest or animal.

It will also feature a rocking seat, rustic den and a campfire, as well as tree stumps, trampolines and a hollow log for kids to play.

The interaction with the natural environment will be encouraged through the "multi-sensory" scheme, green and blue of the garden.

The design also includes "incredible edibles," handcrafted plants, "forest scents" and a variety of plants, shrubs and trees of varying heights and textures.

A waterfall and a stream will provide an opportunity for kids to paddle and play when the show opens in May.
