The Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show is the world’s most prestigious flower show. Award winning garden designers from all over the world, together with their teams, made up of some of the best landscape architects, project managers, builders, technicians, horticulturalists, artists and crafts people, have been working for the past three weeks to turn The Royal Hospital’s grounds at Chelsea into a sea of gardening ideas and innovation. Featuring spectacular, awe inspiring, thought provoking, and exquisite show gardens, visitors attending The RHS Chelsea Flower Show will find inspiration at every turn.
At The RHS Chelsea Flower Show, visitors can see the latest innovations and garden technology, together with the newest plants, which represent the latest in plant breeding, that are released exclusively each year at this illustrious show.
Highlights of this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show include specially designed floral archways at The Bull Ring and London Gate entrances, which were designed to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday; a 6,000 square foot station featuring an 80ft carriage from the Belmond British Pullman, which has been planted up inside the Great Pavilion by award winning Devon Nursery Bowdens. There’s an immersive rose tunnel created by award winning artist Joseph Massie, an acoustic garden inspired by world famous percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie, and a garden designed especially for Great Ormond Street Hospital by Chris Beardshaw. Rosy Hardy’s first Show Garden highlights the fragility of chalk streams, whilst Diarmuid Gavin has taken inspiration from William Heath Robinson for his British Eccentrics Garden, plus horticultural inspiration and plants from all over the world.
Here’s an insight into just some of the stunning gardens, plants, exhibits, and of course the people who have collaborated to produce the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016, which is sponsored by M&G Investments………….
