Countdown to RHS Chelsea

The greatest and most famous gardening event in the world is just over a week away, and it is shaping up to be one the best.

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show event will showcase some of the UK’s best nurseries whilst focusing on design trends and innovative ideas from all over the world.

The show will feature Alan Titchmarsh’s first entry into RHS Chelsea for thirty years, whilst the BBC will provide extensive coverage starring the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch and Darcey Bussell. A Tour de Yorkshire garden will celebrate the Grand Depart of this year’s Tour De France.

The international flavour of the event is highlighted in entrants such as The Massachusetts Garden, a show garden inspired by the sand dunes of Cape Cod on the US Atlantic coast.

Additionally, a Norse Garden, an artisan garden reflecting the Norwegian countryside and a Himalayan rock garden will feature in the Fresh Garden section.
