It’s that time of year where the flowers begin to show their faces once more. The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is back, and this year’s event is looking better than ever. With the latest in contemporary garden ideas, hospitality displays featuring Raymond Blanc, and a whole lot more, this year is certainly looking to fulfil potential.
Details & The History
From the 24th of May, running through to the 28th of May, The RHS Chelsea Flower Show will be held at The Royal Hospital, Chelsea, London, a spacious, clean and safe place for all displays and visitors. The Chelsea Flower Show was once called The Royal Horticultural Society’s Great Spring Show, and was held in 1862, in the RHS garden in Kensington. It wasn’t until 1913 that the show moved to its current home in the grounds of the Chelsea General Hospital. It is still one of the largest flower shows held in Britain, and is definitely the most notorious! ‘The Chelsea Flower Show is the place to see cutting-edge garden design, new plants and find ideas to take home.’ – RHS (Royal Horticultural Society).
