Old Man’s Shed 2018

As you know, one of the most exciting events in the Malvern Garden Buildings calendar is just around the corner… The RHS Chelsea Flower show is taking place from 22nd – 26th May at London Gate, and on the blog this week, we want to share with you a very special must-see space we are creating.


Each year at the show, we have a fabulous array of creative artisans showcasing the very best of their work in our garden buildings. Our artisan retreats are a highlight for many RHS Chelsea visitors and we are proud to be hosting many more talented artisans this year.

We also host a special garden building ourselves too, designed by our in-house team and showcased as the Malvern Garden Buildings Old Man’s Shed.

And this year it is an extra special one as we are paying homage to the Women’s Land Army for the centenary of World War One. We chose one of our classic Holt shed designs for this retreat and this year’s design of the building’s interior offers a true celebration of women and their roles within the Land Army. 23,000 women were recruited to work full-time on the land, to help replace the men who had left to fight in the war. There were three sections in the Women’s Land Army: Agriculture, Forage and Timber Cutting, and the main aim was to increase food production during the war. Our retreat has been created to honour the thousands that joined and helped Britain survive the Great War.

Each Holt shed is expertly crafted in Worcestershire and is available with a range of options. When you’re at the show, just visit our stand on Royal Hospital Way to find out more.

We look forward to seeing you, and sharing our stunning Artisan Retreats and garden building collection with you at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2018!
