Chelsea Flower Show: health, wellbeing and environment top 2019 agenda
For five days in May every year the grounds of Chelsea Hospital are taken over by an array of brightly coloured flowers, towering trees and carefully placed shrubs. Its history can be traced back to 1912 when the Great Spring Show was cancelled to hold the Royal Horticultural Exhibition at the venue. It proved to be such a success that the show would continue to be held there permanently, marking the birth of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
The show awards four different grades to various categories covering displays of flora, trees, vegetables and exhibits of scientific interest. Over 157,000 garden lovers visit each year to witness the breath-taking displays, including gardens from leading names such as Morgan Stanley - who have designed a garden to support the work of the NSPCC - and The British Council, whose garden celebrates 70 years of the British-Indian history and will include historic flowers such as the Himalayan blue poppy; first discovered by a British expedition to India in 1922.
The show is the place to be to find the latest trends in horticulture and new discoveries in plants. So make sure that you don't miss out on the most exciting gardening event of the year: buy Chelsea Flower Show tickets now at StubHub.
