The Duchess of Cambridge has launched a new children’s health and well-being Back to Nature garden at the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Garden Wisley in Surrey. It is inspired by the other gardens she created together with landscape architects Andree Davies and Adam White along with the RHS.

The Duchess of Cambridge arrived with celebrity cook Mary Berry, an RHS Ambassador.

Sue Biggs, RHS director-general, said: “We are grateful to the duchess for the incredible impact that this Back to Nature collaboration has had. “There is no doubt that this project, through her passion and vision, has highlighted that access to natural environments and green spaces isn’t just a nice to have, it’s vital to have. This is something that the RHS also strongly believes in and will continue to champion through our Greening Great Britain Campaign and charitable work.”

The Duchess of Cambridge’s other co-created gardens were previously exhibited at the Chelsea Flower Show and the Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival. This particular Back to Nature garden includes elements from those gardens such as the hollow log from the Chelsea Flower Show and the rolling hill also shown at the Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival. It also has a few new features like two connected tree houses and slides.
