Chelsea Flower Show is one of those traditions that I simply can’t miss every year. As a garden designer and having studied horticulture, I have to visit the pinnacle of horticulture.
Every year the RHS puts together the most spectacular horticultural show. It is quite unique to have in one place the best garden design, growers and traders within the industry.
I worked for the RHS in the shows department and I know how much work goes into every single one of these events. Chelsea is the biggest, busiest and most prestigious, so very well done to the whole team that makes it possible!
So this year it couldn’t be different. Despite having fewer show gardens than the previous year, CFS is about the quality and not the quantity. Here is a small view of what’s on offer this year.
Through BBC TV coverage and worldwide media, this show is the one opportunity for horticulture to become global. Anybody working in gardening and horticulture is looking out for Chelsea Flower Show this week.
New trends, products and plants presented this week will still have a huge impact throughout the year. And now we just wait for Chelsea Flower Show 2018 which of course is on its way.

The big marquee is the place to admire the craziest flowering displays. British growers and nurseries from around the globe nurture their plants to bring them to London and showcase the very best.
