The Chelsea Flower Show is heaven for gardeners!

If you love gardening, beautiful flowers or just a great day out then Chelsea Flower Show is the place for you!  For one week in late May, the grounds of the Royal Hospital, where the Chelsea Pensioners live, are transformed into a gardening heaven from the incredible show gardens to stalls selling hoses, from the creative artisan gardens to a stand selling tractors!

There is the serious business of competing for awards for the exhibitors and, for the visitors, of getting to see it all without exhausting oneself.  So, join me on a leisurely tour around the show gardens, the artisan gardens, the grand pavilion and the stunning flowers:

You can’t leave Chelsea without a ‘chat’ with a lovely pensioner!

    Beautiful place to visit and worth every penny! I was lucky enough to visit the Chelsea Flower Show about 7 years ago. A friend had a relative who made sculptures and had a display there… Nice blog you have btw 🙂
