First ever Finnish sauna at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 21-26.09.2021

The first ever Finnish sauna for RHS Chelsea Flower Show will be presented at Taina Suonio’s design, ‘The Finnish Soul Garden’. The design showcases a variety of Finnish coastal plants and a genuine Finnish wood-heated sauna. The sauna has a vegetated roof with plants chosen specifically on the University of Helsinki’s Fifth Dimension Research Group’s work on studying which native plants survive on vegetated roofs in the harsh Finnish climate conditions.

“The garden by Taina Suonio is a demonstration of the clean and quiet environment of Finland and offers a unique window to the Finnish soul”, says Ms Jaana Husu-Kallio, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry in Finland.

The designer, Taina Suonio is a horticulturist, environmental biologist, researcher, and landscape designer in the Fifth Dimension – Green Roofs in Urban Areas research group at the University of Helsinki, Finland.

We are thrilled to be working together with Taina Suonio and cannot wait to see her design live!  More information and tickets from RHS Chelsea Flower Show!
