May 19, Chelsea Flower Show
This is one of the events of the year – not just for garden enthusiasts but for socialites and anyone who loves beautiful things. See the very best in modern garden design, themed gardens, extravagant plantings, plus outdoor furniture and greenhouses. On the last day, there’s the opportunity to buy some of the magnificent exhibits.
The Chelsea Flower Show has been held in the grounds of the Chelsea Hospital, London every year since 1913, apart from gaps during the two World Wars. Once Britain’s largest flower show (it has now been overtaken by RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show), it is still the most prestigious.
