Why Kate Middleton didn't win a medal for her Chelsea garden

Mumabi, May 27 (TIWN): The awards for the Chelsea Flower Show is what every garden designer anticipates, though not for Kate Middleton, who has made her design debut at the prestigious horticultural show.

The Duchess of Cambridge co-designed the RHS Back to Nature garden with Andrée Davies and Adam White, and made up one of two gardens not awarded at Chelsea.
 
Why, you may ask? Because the RHS Back to Nature garden is a Feature Garden, and these gardens do not get judged, unlike the Show Gardens, Artisan Gardens and Space to Grow gardens. But it doesn't make Kate's garden any less important.
 
Every Chelsea show sees a Feature Garden or two, and these are actually designed on behalf of the Royal Horticultural Society, hence why it isn't judged. There's usually a partnership or campaign behind it, which sends out a strong message and theme for the show.
 
For example, last year Matt Keightley designed the RHS Feel Good Garden to promote the positive impact that gardens and gardening have on our mental health and emotional wellbeing.
 
And in 2017, Nigel Dunnett designed the RHS Greening Grey Britain Garden, another Feature Garden which aimed to emphasise the importance of green spaces in tackling pollution and climate change.
