The Chelsea Flower Show is the highlight of many a horticulturalist’s year. Held annually in May in the grounds of The Royal Hospital, London, it is a flower show of global importance. Running since 1862, the show celebrates all things gardening and never fails to put on a floral spectacular.
The RHS Chelsea Flower Show opens to the press and special guests on the Monday and members of the royal family, including The Queen, usually look around in the late afternoon. RHS members can visit on the Tuesday and Wednesday and the general public attend from Thursday to Saturday. Saturday is the day of the big plant sell off where many pick up a great bargain and momento of the show.
Hampshire exhibitors never fail to impress at the event and the 2017 show should be no exception.
