RHS Chelsea Flower Show – Focus on the Flowers!
The Chelsea Flower Show has been held in the grounds of the Chelsea Hospital every year since 1913, apart from gaps during the two World Wars.
It used to be Britain’s largest flower show (it has now been overtaken by Hampton Court), but is still the most prestigious. From the beginning it has contained both nursery exhibits and model gardens. Every year there have been exhibits from foreign countries as well as from Britain.
It is the flower show most associated with the Royal family, who attend the opening day every year.
This is without doubt the world’s most prestigious flower Show. Every year during May, the grounds of the Royal Hospital in Chelsea are transformed into a plant paradise with the finest examples of horticultural excellence in the world.
First impressions of the show?
It’s massive. It’s a complete assault on your senses, and there’s a surprise or a ‘Wow!’ around every corner. With so many sights and scents to savour and ideas to process, it’s certainly one to do, if at all possible: if only once in your life.
