Over 500 exhibitors are tending to their most prized plants for the 2018 Chelsea Flower Show, which has taken place annually (apart from a few gaps during the two world wars) for over 100 years now. This year however, there are some changes in store. As well as a new layout, there's a new ‘Space to Grow’ garden and, for the first time on Fri May 25, Ranelagh Gardnes will remain open for an evening of live music and entertainment.
This year the theme is health and wellbeing and highlights so far include Sarah Price’s ‘Mediterranean haven’ show garden, Tom Massey’s ‘The Lemon Tree Trust Garden’ inspired by people in situations of forced migration and displacement and Hay-Joung Hwang’s futuristic Eco-City Garden.
More information about exhibitors and show gardens will be released nearer the time, but tickets are already available to buy via the RHS website.
