The Soldier’s Charity will stage a garden called No Man’s Land. It aims to serve as a poignant reminder of hardship faced by troops 100 years ago and the sacrifices that soldiers made.

The garden will reflect on the damaging effects of the Great War, both on the landscape where battles were fought and on those involved and their families.

At the show, a popular event with the Chelsea pensioners (pictured), charity Help for Heroes will exhibit a garden called Hope on the Horizon. It will remind visitors of the hardship suffered a century ago, and honour soldiers who have served in more recent conflicts.

In the Great Pavilion, Birmingham City Council will return with a display marking World War One. It will feature battlefield trenches and 4ft (1.2m) high poppies.

Chelsea 2014 takes place in London on 20-24 May. Go to www.rhs.org.uk for details.
