RHS hands out Chelsea awards

Those heading to the Royal Horticultural Societys (RHS) Chelsea Flower Show this week may be interested to hear that the organisation has handed out a number of prizes.

Said to be the best-known garden and greenhouse event in the world, the exhibition attracts enthusiasts from all over as they seek out new knowledge and inspiration.

Visitors may be especially keen to see the Sreptocarpus Harlequin Blue, which was handed the Chelsea 2010 Plant of the Year Award and is likely to attract a lot of attention.

As predicted, the Daily Telegraphs stunning display garden was voted as the best in show this year and is also worth a look for those attending the show.

Brits who live in the city could draw inspiration from Thrives entry, which scooped the best urban garden gong, while the best courtyard garden went to The Two Moors Festival.

While the show closes early on its final day (Saturday May 29th), exhibitors will be selling off their display models from 16:00 BST until 17:30.

The event is taking place in the Royal Hospital, London, and will be open from 08:00 until 20:00 for the next three days.
