A PIECE of Lake District history is to go on show at one of the world’s most prestigious flower shows.

The World of Beatrix Potter, at Bowness, has joined forces with a top garden designer to create a show-stopping Herb Garden for the world-famous RHS Chelsea Flower Show which will be held in May.

Acclaimed designer Richard Lucas is working with the attraction and plant nursery Hooks Green Herbs to create a show garden for the Grand Pavilion.

The garden will aim to bring to life the drawings and illustrations from Beatrix Potter’s famous little books and highlight key iconic images from the Tale of Peter Rabbit. It will have three distinct areas; the natural garden, the greenhouse garden and Mr. McGregor’s vegetable plot.
