The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) and The Posh Shed Company have extended their partnership, which began nearly four years ago, with the RHS endorsement of a new shed designed to enhance and support the changing lifestyles of gardeners and non-gardeners alike. 

Called The RHS Garden Retreat, the shed is fully insulated and double-glazed, under a vaulted living – or “green” – roof with a cedar-shingled surround. Green roofs boost the thermal performance of the structure while supporting insects and wildlife, thus mitigating the previously uncultivated space the shed may have occupied. 

Three planting schemes, devised by the RHS, are available, catering for woodland shade, dry sunny or coastal settings. 

“The ‘garden shed’ can and should be so much more than merely functional: it should also be a space to enjoy the garden, a place to relax or work and a destination within your own outside world to sit and watch nature at work – somewhere that is great for your well-being,” says Richard Frost, chairman and co-founder, The Posh Shed Company. “It is with this in mind that we have partnered with the RHS to create The RHS Garden Retreat. We are delighted to be involved with this project.” 

Light floods in from three sides – there are three full-length feature windows – while the galleried porch offers shade and shelter and an integral seat from which to enjoy the garden. 

The RHS Garden Retreat is on permanent display within Battleston Hill at RHS Garden Wisley in Surrey, a woodland garden. It is available to order at

“More than ever, the mental and physical health benefits of gardens and gardening are being recognized and appreciated, and the way that people use their gardens is changing as a result,” says Cathy Snow, licensing manager, RHS. “We are very pleased to have worked with The Posh Shed Company to develop The RHS Garden Retreat, which can provide a stylish, comfortable sanctuary in your garden to pursue hobbies or work from home while connecting with nature.”
