The Chelsea Flower Show 2019 will for the very first time in its long history feature a Finnish Garden: The Roots in Finland Kyrö Garden!

The creative force behind the Finnish garden in the Space to Grow –class is a Finnish landscape designer Taina Suonio. The main sponsor of the garden is FBCC member, Finnish rye distillery Kyrö Distillery Company.
