A beautifully crafted hollow log for children to climb through, a den, waterfall, stream and tree house are key elements in the RHS Back to Nature Garden. Telegraph reported,

The Duchess of Cambridge has spoken of the “overriding and debilitating” sense of isolation too many parents still experience in their children’s early years, as she shares her hopes of overcoming a “fear of judgment” to allow them to ask for help.  On Monday, The Duchess unveils her children’s garden at the annual Chelsea Flower Show, said she found it “heart-breaking” to know that “there is a long way to go” to ensure all children grow up happy, healthy and ready to fulfil their potential. 

In a letter to experts, she spelled out her ambition that their work would help to “bring about the transformation that will make positive change for generations to come”, breaking a cycle of disadvantage and trauma they had seen all too often in Britain. In creating the “Back to Nature” garden at RHS Chelsea, the Duchess is understood to have wanted to emphasise the importance of outdoor play on early years development. “In recent years I have focussed much of my work on the early years, and how instrumental they are for outcomes later in life,” she said. I believe that spending time outdoors when we are young can play a role in laying the foundations for children to become happy, healthy adults.

The garden includes a swing seat, hanging below the garden’s centrepiece, a high platform tree house.

The Royal Horticultural Society announced that the garden will be relocated to an NHS trust after the show. As always, Kate effect struck and the Chelsea Flower Show saw a surge in the ticket sales this year. The Evening Standard reported,

Kensington Palace revealed in January that the Duchess of Cambridge would help design a garden for the annual celebration of horticulture alongside landscape architects Andree Davies and Adam White and the Royal Horticultural Society. The announcement led to an overnight doubling of ticket sales and all 168,000 are expected to have been snapped up by today or tomorrow. That puts the “sold out” date almost a fortnight ahead of 2018, when tickets were still available on the opening day. When the duchess’s involvement was announced, visits to the RHS Chelsea web pages increased by 100 per cent and there was a huge surge of people wanting tickets.

In the pictures released by the palace, Duchess is in her favourite look – casual. The country girl at heart, Catherine is wearing what looks like Jaeger-Fine Stripe Linen Roll Sleeve Shirt. Huge thanks to Middleton Maven on Twitter for the id.
