Chelsea Flower Show

It's that time of year again when the best in garden design is showcased at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.  Held at Chelsea since 1912, it is the most famous flower and landscape gardens show in the world, attracting visitors from all continents.

There are four grades of awards presented – gold, silver-gilt, silver and bronze – in each of the categories listed below. Bronze grade exhibits do not actually receive a medal.

Awards categories:

  •     Flora Gardens and floral exhibits
  •     Hogg Exhibits of trees
  •     Knightian Exhibits of vegetables, including herbs
  •     Lindley Exhibits of special educational or scientific interest
  •     Grenfell Exhibits of pictures, photographs, floral arrangements and floristry

You have until the 27th of May to view the inspirational garden displays at the Royal Chelsea Hospital.
