Celebrity nominated charities set to benefit from Everest front garden displays at this year’s RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show
TV gardener David Domoney has created three themed garden displays for Everest Home Improvements at this year's RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, which will raise funds for charities nominated by well-known gardening and countryside personalities involved in the event.

Bill Oddie, Julia Bradbury and Carol Klein are three of the eight TV celebrities who will be appearing on stage at the show's RHS Celebrity Theatre, which is supported by Everest. They were each asked to nominate a charity to be featured as part of this initiative, with Bill Oddie selecting the Woodland Trust, Julia Bradbury choosing Mend our Mountains and Carol Klein nominating Mesothelioma UK.
Located beside the RHS Celebrity Theatre, the three garden displays have been specially designed by David Domoney to reflect the nominated charities, bringing in elements of contrast to encourage people to think about what that charity represents and the difference it can make. Visitors to the show will be invited to vote for their favourite, with donations being presented by Everest after the event depending on the number of visitor votes each collects.
Each of the gardens also features a front door and window from Everest's wide range of products, including new additions such as its stylish House Beautiful doors collection, created in collaboration with interiors magazine House Beautiful; its state-of-the-art acoustic glazing, which keeps unwanted noise outside; and its impressive flush casement uPVC window, which has been designed to resemble a sleek aluminium or classic timber window.
Speaking prior to this year's event, David Domoney says, "It's great to team up with Everest again this year at the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. Year after year, this prestigious show is full with inspirational garden design ideas and floral exhibits. I'm especially looking forward to presenting in the Celebrity Theatre where I will be taking audiences on a journey of discovery and the secrets of the creatures that live in our gardens."
The RHS Celebrity Theatre, supported by Everest, gives visitors to the show an opportunity to watch and listen to a range of TV personalities throughout each day. The celebrities will be talking about their passion for gardening, wildlife and nature, as well as providing tips and expert advice.
Alongside the RHS Celebrity Theatre, the Everest stand will showcase a range of products including its highly energy efficient triple glazed window. Visitors will also be given an exclusive preview of the Everest garden room, styled to look like an attractive home office. Due to be launched by Everest in the near future, this versatile space is an appealing and practical addition to the garden.
Joanne Holland, CEO of Everest, says, "The RHS Celebrity Theatre is one of the highlights of the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show and we're looking forward to supporting it again this year. We hope that many of the show's visitors will come along and vote for their favourite front garden display, supporting the three very deserving charities that have been nominated by Bill Oddie, Julia Bradbury and Carol Klein. David Domoney has created some really attractive design interpretations, using plants and products that work in harmony with their surroundings, and I'm sure these will inspire many of us to think about how we can make more of our own front gardens."
