Every May the grounds of the Royal Hospital, Chelsea are transformed into a patchwork of show gardens, inspirational small gardens and vibrant plant displays as the great and the good of the gardening world gather for the UK's most famous flower show. Set in 11 acres, this is the most prestigious show in the country, showcasing all the latest in garden design innovation. Dubbed 'the garden equivalent of Paris Fashion Week', Chelsea has become an important venue for watching emerging gardening trends.
This show is the one the top professionals want to be known for, with over 550 exhibitors all striving for the horticultural prize of prizes, a Chelsea Gold Medal. The Great Pavilion is the centrepiece, housing a vast exhibition of displays by growers from all over the world, the Floral Design Studio showcases some of the best, most creative and technically accomplished floral designers from around the UK and overseas, while the Show Gardens incorporate tranquil water features, sculptures and carefully conceived plantings, making them an annual highlight and the talking point of every show.
