The Chelsea Flower Show is an annual event where The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has carefully selected a range of exhibitors to display over 100,000 plants from around the world. The show runs for four days - Tuesday, May 23 - Sat, May 27, 2023, at Royal Hospital Chelsea, where the garden design competition has been running since 1922.
The Chelsea Flower Show is a great place to see new plant varieties, but it's also an excellent opportunity to see old favourites in a different setting. For example, if you're looking for plants that can withstand the heat of a Southern garden, look no further than the South African Pavilion. And if you want something compact with big leaves and flowers that will thrive in the shade, head over to the Japanese Pavilion.
The show is also an excellent opportunity for learning about how plants can be used in different ways: Some exhibitors focus on using native species; others have created gardens that emphasise sustainability by using only natural materials such as wood chips instead of soil amendments like peat moss or composted bark mulch. The Chelsea Flower Show is a beautiful event for all the family and an opportunity to celebrate gardening and nature.
