Chelsea Flower Show

posted by Evelina

One of the biggest weeks for inspirational gardening  The Chelsea Flower Show begins Tuesday May 24 for five days of elaborate and elegant garden exhibits in the 11 acres of the Royal Hospital, Chelsea, London. Also known as the Great Spring Show, this red carpet event is the garden design equivalent of any haute couture fashion show.

Earlier this week VIP members of the Royal Horticultural Society attended the opening and preview shows. Among the 157,000 people who will visit the garden exhibit this week are distinguished guests including Her Majesty the Queen, Princess Beatrice, Helen Mirren, Gwyneth Paltrow, Vanessa Redgrave, and many other A-list celebrities and members of the Royal family.

Tickets to this event are already sold out, but you can see photos and video footage on the Royal Horticultural Society website
